More human than human is not necessarily better
My employer's overhauled "My UNC" page has a new aggregator, but it doesn't seem to be much of an improvement. It offers this headline and link to a letter to the editor that asks the campus paper to cover an out-of-state story. (DTH is short for Daily Tar Heel.) Is this really the top news on campus today?

In a related development, Pam Robinson at Words at Work points us to a Business Week piece that argues that editors will no longer be necessary in the glorious age of technology. I, for one, do not welcome our aggregate overlords.

    This is also an example of why headlines for the Web need to be different from print headlines.
