A2: AnnArbor.com

On the Nieman Journalism Lab, Ben Cohen reports on the launch of AnnArbor.com. He writes: “The first thing I noticed on AnnArbor.com is, well, the first thing I was supposed to notice. The bare home page doesn’t even try to do the traditional newspaper editor’s job of defining which stories are the most important or pressing. It’s simply a time-sequenced river of news. Think of it as Times Wire, except without the choice to click back to The New York Times’ spiffy home page. This is the home page.” [Source]
