I may have told you what a huge fan I am of NPR’s live annotation system for speeches and debates — it’s also discussed in the article. It runs off a shared Google doc. So sweet.

What I like most about Fisher’s article is that he’s thinking about how to serve the public better, and that’s something all journalists should do more often.
