"Is Amazon the model for online storytelling? Quite plausibly,
yes.... Who will be the first smart cookie to hire Kampinsky to
turn this broadly fabulous idea into a demonstration project?"

"Amazoning and Aggregating - the new news: A look at how news sites can be improved."
"...An intruiging look at how you can improve your content
delivery to give more information value to your readers. I would
definitely switch to such a news site if it existed."

"Basically, these guys have nailed it. The way news is typically
presented on the internet is in a way that's receptive to the old-style
AP reports and time deadlines. The internet has no time deadline."

"... This article is a solid refresher on what the differences
are and how they can be advantageous to writers, story tellers,
and indeed, resellers like Amazon. The examples showing the use
of the Amazon model ... (are) nothing less than brilliant."
"It seems weird at first, but maybe I would want to see the
news this way..."

"Designers of online learning should read this article. Not
because I think an online course should look like a page from Amazon.com
but because this is an example of how a traditional media should
break through its traditional limitations. After viewing this article,
don't you think it's absurb to simply place some text on an HTML
page and call it online news?"

"Think about it, because I think we'll see this model of news
sooner than later."
