  2. Bluffton's online edition is pretty sweet (the PDF viewing thingy that makes it seem like you're actually turning the pages).
  3. it's a very interesting morris experiment. the paper is given away for free all over the place, and the website is mainly postings from readers/users. from what i've heard, morris made a huge investment here (and continues to spend) and the area is close-knit and growing. the county (beaufort co.) is also home to hh and beaufort (with daily papers) on the coast.

    I'm actually the editor looking for an additional reporter in Bluffton. If you have any questions, let me know. We're excited to finally get this position added to staff.

    Bluffton's web site is supposed to be a trial for the rest of the Morris papers. The Morris paper I used to work at was taking the Bluffton style for a redesign of their site. I haven't seen that site go into affect yet, and I don't think it will because my paper was too ambitious for its own good, but from what I understand, that web site is supposed to become a templet for other Morris sites.

    Mrs. Editude visited there last year to see how a Web-heavy, free-print product was put together. Said she liked the place and loved the Hilton Head beaches (and she has plenty of sand-in-her-toes experience).

    Is this the same paper that you have to take a five hour writing test when you apply?

    That Web site some kind of blows me away.

    If you haven't checked out how you'll be reading newspapers in 10 years, go see it now.

    An interesting site, to be sure, but when I clicked on "News" and "Sports" I got a three-paragraph summary of a game that ended with "GO BOBCATS."

    I like things being interactive, but I hope that's not the future of the biz to a T.
