Flickring the News is a thought experiment based on a design riddle we posed to ourselves not too long ago.
“What if,” we asked ourselves, “news sites were built for sharing instead of for telling?”
This is what evolved from that question.
What we hope we will demonstrate here is how any traditional online media site could effectively jettison the historic print layout model (aka the bath water).
In its place, we suggest using the design model of any successful social media site to give power to the reader and focus to the individual story instead of the home page. We think this amplifies the best features of news exchange and online community (aka the baby).
