Washington Post, New York Times and Mozilla team up for new Web site comment system

In an unusual partnership, The Washington Post, the New York Times and software developer Mozilla will team up to create digital tools that will make it easier for readers to post comments and photos on news sites and to interact with journalists and each other.

The two-year development project will be funded by a $3.89 million grant from the John S and James L Knight Foundation, the Miami-based philanthropic organization that specialises in media and the arts.

As described by its developers, the as-yet-unnamed system aims to standardize the many different community engagement systems that Web sites now use to collect and publish outside contributions, especially reader comments and photos — via redwolf.newsvine.com
