Nice example of networked journalism from David Pogue in The Times today: He wanted to puncture the megapixel myth of cameras and set about to test whether people could tell the difference of a few million pixels in a large print. While reporting the story, he blogged it and his readers objected to his methodology. And so he threw out the challenge to beat what he did and one reader/photographer did. And in the end, Pogue was able to quote what consumers said about all this. So by opening up his story, it improved it. And by adding effort and reporting, he improved the conversation. Everbody wins.
