Mozilla to Develop $4 Million Comments Platform With New York Times and Washington Post

Leslie Kaufman, reporting for the NYT:

The New York Times and The Washington Post announced on Thursday that they had teamed up with Mozilla to develop a new platform to better manage their readers’ online comments and contributions.

The platform will be supported by a grant of roughly $3.9 million from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, which promotes innovation in journalism.

I have an idea that could save them $4 million: just get rid of the comments.
