The blogosphere has been buzzing with the message that Google News is allowing comments for a selected number of people, involved in specific stories. To be honest, I don’t see the big deal. Most German magazines have allowed readers to comment on their online stories for a while and I know that BusinessWeek does this, too. Of course I realize that Google News is different in scale and concept, but I still don’t understand what is so groundbreaking about it, to warrant all this attention.
If I am completely missing the point, please, someone enlighten me!
