here and there

Newspapers all over the country are embracing the Internet as a way to reach the next generation of readers. Recently the newspapers in my current and previous hometowns both added new web features. I was struck by the coincidence of the timing and by the difference in the content.

The Knoxville News Sentinel's new page is called YourHub. It allows users to post announcements from their own community. The Los Angeles Times has a new page called The Envelope. It covers the award season in the entertainment industry.

At The Envelope, today's headlines reveal which films are in the running for an animated feature Oscar nomination. Meanwhile at YourHub, someone has submitted a story about a great Crappie day, which sounds like a possible title for the next Wallace & Gromit movie.
