    It's certainly "participatory journalism," if that's actually what the Guardian is after. Anyone think their paper is bold enough to try this?

    Not exactly the same, of course, but a few years ago after Ellen Foley took over at the Wisconsin State Journal, they invited readers to tell them what stories they wanted to see on the front page the next day, and they listened, although I don't know how long that lasted.

    I've been thinking about trying this in our sports department; offering readers a chance to vote on which game to cover on a specific night of the week.
    Problem is, because we're short-staffed, we don't usually have the option of Game A or Game B, because we need both.
