5B: Today's Guardian

A session at OpenTech 2010

Saturday 11th September, 2010

4:00pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

Why are news sites less easy to read than newspapers? Browsing a newspaper is so easy that we'll often pick up any old discarded newspaper and flick through, reading a few stories. By contrast, reading a newspaper's-worth of news on a website would be a chore. How can we make sites that are as easy to browse and read as print newspapers? What problems do we need to solve? Why do all news websites work against their customers' desire to read the news? The Today's Guardian website uses the Open Platform API to make the news easy to read again.

Also in this slot:

Not evenly distributed - Gavin Bell

Making newspapers out of newspapers and the new serendipity - Chris Thorpe
