Beeb 2.0

Auntie Beeb, to the ex-Colonial types is going in for a nip-and-tuck. Forgetting that reason people love BBC for its content, and not gimmicky tricks, the company is hoping to build a public service version of, reports Media Guardian. Its betting the farm on user generated content - blogs, videos and what not. Something tells me, this is going to get a lot of attention. I just simply want a damn good, and reliable news source, which BBC used to me, before it got the “forgetting-your-core-competency” disease. For UGC, Newsvine is pretty darn good.
