Alan RUSBRIDGER advice

Alan RUSBRIDGER of the Guardian spoke at a conference in Jaipur, India, a week ago and had some very interesting comments to make, winding up with these ten points for newspapers, roughly reported here:
1 - Encourage participation
2 - No longer "us" to "them" publishing
3 - Involve others pre-publication and seek their ideas
4 - Help communities of interest form
5 - Be open to the web and be part of it
6 - Aggregate and curate the work of others
7 - Recognize that journalists are not the only experts
8 - Promote diversity and shared values
9 - Publishing is the beginning of the journalistic process rather than the end
10- Be transparent and open challenge, correction and addition
