Why the Web is Better

23 Apr ’06

I don’t want to pick unduly on what was likely an oversight, but this strikes me as a good example of the advantage the web has in automating the contextualization of information. Earlier this week the Star reported that Ontario’s pit bull ban had been successfully challenged in Court, and the next day editorialized on the issue. This morning the Star reports on a pit bull attack yesterday, without mentioning the ban – or whether the dogs had been unmuzzled because of the Court decision. A simple “see related stories” routine would address what was presumably reporter (and editorial) error.
