Why doesn’t every campus — or every newsroom — have a website as good as Overheard at McGill?
It’s all user-generated content. It’s easy to navigate. The search is clean. Students send in snippets of dialogue. The only incentive seems to be
the pride of making a contribution and the possibility of sharing in the
sales if your post is made into a T-shirt. It builds community. Could a daily paper in a college town make this work? Or a major metro with a youth-oriented entertainment tab?
