Le Monde goes Web 2.0 ?
http://www.paidcontent.co.uk/ reports on LePost.fr, the Web 2.0 experiment (still a Beta version) from the interactive unit of France’s Le Monde newspaper: "Separate from the flagship paper and its LeMonde.fr website, LePost.fr offers a mixed, continuous flow of news from both reader-contributors and staff reporters. In true Web 2.0 shades of pink and blue, the left half of the page is home to a reverse-chronological, blog-like mix of stories (authors “Betty Scoop” and “cecile50” rub shoulders with Agence France Presse). Users can elect to read only particular topics or posters, create a personal profile, join groups and organize information using tags". And because Rugby is all over France these days, my vote goes to this silly (but funny) transcript of the famous All Blacks Haka. If you don't understand French the message is: You want an IPhone? ask it nicely : Vous voulez un iPhone? Demandez-le gentiment!
