03 Apr Benetton Talk
The now defunct Benetton Talk Blog was launched in 2005 and updated daily, drawing from different news sources around the world. I was part of the pioneer team who launched and curated the content. It was perhaps the start of online news medium around the world before all the news media channel took to the online space, and with the launch of Facebook and social media, content went viral more quickly.
However in this sea of content, it’s hard to get the same level of objectivity these days and some silly articles still go viral anyway. Frightening times when people are not thinking as much as they did before the advent of the internet and social media.
