BBC sources 'clippings' via

Another sensible move over at the BBC news editors’ blog, with the daily ‘BBC in the news‘ postings being (presumably) replaced by a account. The ‘clippings’ posts did feel a bit out of place alongside the growing number of more substantial blog postings… plus of course, by going down the route, they get the chance to:

  • include online sources alongside the conventional media: particularly important when there’s such fervent debate about the BBC in the blogosphere;
  • ‘crowdsource’ the process by receiving items via the ‘for:’ protocol; and
  • bring the content back into their own sidebar automatically via RSS feed.

Nice work.
