“US-based CityTools will enable newspaper publishers to create content networks with one another and draw on articles written by members of the public.
“If you spin the CityTools model forward, you can go to your local newspaper website and suddenly, because they have built smart networks and smart relationships with other publishers, you get reliable content. The same kind of
mass but its all relevant to the local readership.”
