The discussion whether blogs will replace journalism is as old as blogs are, and the answer still is a resounding No, afaik. But we will increasingly see attempts to blend different aspects and pieces of functionality from both sides of the discussion. Our local newspaper is one of the few main stream media companies that has been experimenting with social software like features for a long time. They were the first that had commenting on each news article. And they recently launched local sites where citizens can report stories themselves, being mixed with what the reporters bring in. They also have ranking tools on their site, showing you the most read pages for instance. Too bad the number 1 read page is…..404 Page Not Found.
