Topix.net Invite Readers To Post Ccontent

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:37 am

Topix.net, the Palo Alto Web site that features news stories from around the world, is expanding into the citizen journalism business, offering readers a chance to publish their own stories.

The move is a part of a broader overhaul that includes the addition of public forums and the ability to comment on stories.

“The nature of news is changing as interactivity comes into play,” said Chris Tolles, Topix’s vice president of marketing. “The number of people blogging and wanting to participate seems to be an opportunity.”

The company is jointly owned by newspaper companies Gannett, Tribune and Knight Ridder, the parent company of the Mercury News.
