Times comment editor collects web comments

The Times has a handful of blogs already, and has just launched a new one, Comment Central. It’s interesting because the paper’s comment editor is collecting the best comment from around the web and linking to it from his site. A national newspaper directly engaging with blogs like that? Very cool.

I *do *like the post exposing the government’s split personality about chips.

As an aside, I also find it very interesting that The Times’ blogs are hosted on Typepad and, as yet, they’ve done nothing to integrate them with the existing domain structure – something that’s trivially easy to do with the service.
