Interesting project over at the BBC. Ben Hammersley (the freelancer who helped build and shape the Guardian’s Comment is Free) is now working with an interesting project with the Beeb in Turkey as that country prepares for its national election. Ben’s blog is basically being RSSed to a page of the BBC News page, and giving regular updates to New 24. I’ll be watching the outcome with great interest, not least because I reckon it possibly has wider applications.
