The very shape of news is changing. Its becoming more collaborative, produced by experts as well as by a community of readers in a dynamic form, says Eric Hippeau, managing director of Softbank Capital and one of the principal investors in the Huffington Post. Softbank is also an investor in Associated Content, a company that aggregates community comments around news reporting.
Eric is a former news executive himself, having run Ziff Davis Media for several years.
I spoke with Eric earlier this week at the AlwaysOn conference in New York earlier this week.
