Comment: Kos doesn't believe in open source journalism. (Score 1) 347

by Slash Watch (#11647826) Attached to: Open Source Journalism
A fundamental tenet of open source journalism is being able to pass comment on it and to contribute.

If you try to sign up on his big "journalism" website, there's a 24 hour delay before you can post comments and a one week delay before you can post diaries.

Maybe I'm being paranoid here, but isn't it convenient that if you want to sign up and post a comment about a story that you want others to see, you won't be able to do so until the story (and so your comment) have dropped off the front page? Could it be that Kos isn't really interested in fostering debate at all and just wants an echo chamber for his buddies?

No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.
