The Star-Tribune from Minneapolis-St. Paul took a different approach to its editorial board online starting today.
It is producing a far more dynamic, interactive and collaborative package that starts with blogs and ends with reverse-published user comments in its OpinionExchange package. Editor Scott Gillespie says that the online content will be updated throughout the day and that the paper will effectively be a snapshot of what the site generates.
This is in keeping with a number of other print-as-last-edition approaches, but the Star-Tribune appears also committed to reworking its content as users chime in --- an opportunity "to hear from you while we work" instead of after the work is done.
The challenge, though, is to involve users on editorials and commentary driven by late-breaking news.
