A New C/Net

C/Net has long been one of my first reads. There is a new C/Net on the way. Take a look at this very cool beta site.

What is really cool is the center section in which stories are ranked in terms of the conversation – based on comments. This is a fantastic idea. Those that are participating in the news, get to set the editorial flow.

Also love the scroll through treatment of the mast area. Idea. Also like how they have moved away from the traditional industry segmentation navigation. And a new, Media 2.0 news section. That’s smart.

This is a vastly improved version of an important news site. Anyway, I’ll keep looking and sharing views.

So, what do you think?

    Look forward to hearing more, and glad you — a regular reader — find the changes appealing at first glance. I hope regular use is similarly rewarding. The beta site will be _the_ site for all readers soon enough.

    FYI, it’s CNET … the pipe in our logo has confused the issue for, oh, 10 years, but for at least the last 7, we haven’t included the pipe when spelling our name. But the sins of the past revisit us all the time! 🙂

    Thanks for reading.
