Hey, timely... This was in my email today from J-Source.ca:

"OpenFile: at the corner of hope and hype"
http://www.j-source.ca/english_new/detail.php?id=5998

Overall, and just IMHO... The best paranoid-thinking says, the oligopoly-- sorry, "consortium" that nows owns Canadian Press approves of this business-less hyper-local journalism approach.

To me, it always sounded like skimming the new community "citizen journalist" pool for stories and media they could turn to copyright-protected property.

I simply assume, here in Hamilton, Open-File called out for references and a very suitable candidate was eventually selected based on individual recommendations... To each their own conclusions.

But none of it explains the nagging question:

Why does the site design make me think I'm supposed to be paying a bill and doing something else? Where's the upside in hiding the News at a News site..? THAT part still eludes me...
