The war comes home

The News-Democrat in Belleville has moved opportunistically to leverage local interest in Ken Burns' PBS documentary on The War, building a site where local folks can tell their own stories and share histories.

The effort is in its infancy, editor Jeff Couch reports, but "we believe we will be able to build a rich, layered
WWII page with lots of reader participation and full use of multimedia story-telling tools."

I love the way they jumped right in and plan to improve and elaborate with experience. I'd like to see what else McClatchy sites are doing with this.
