Read/WriteWeb has a very interesting article about The Issue, which is an online collection of blog posts with several very interesting features:

1) Human-edited.
2) Issue-focused.
3) Neutral Point of View.

Read/WriteWeb sees the story as one about digging into the long tail.  I’m not convinced by that: this technique of having human editors dig up the story seems fundamentally limiting.  I wonder, however, if there is a mashup possible for The Issue and Slashdot that would let the masses dig up potential stories, and use a wisdom of crowds approach to peek get properties (2) and (3) above.
