Yahoo! Provides Backstage Look at Blogging

Yahoo! reporter Kevin Sites has launched a new project: “People On The Web” that focuses on “people behind the websites.” From Scott Moore, head of Yahoo news and information: “[m]any of the people who are [blogging] have societal goals in mind. This is a window into what’s happening in our society and how technology is impacting our daily lives.”

Last year, Sites traveled to war zones around the world. From Sites: “This year, the idea is to put a human face on the Internet. This is a nice change of pace for me, because there weren’t a whole lot of positive stories that came out of what I did last year.”
