Five Answers with Greg Barber, The Coral Project

By CATHERINE PAYNE
May 18, 2015

How do you think the project could help news organizations?

Nearly all of the news organizations I've spoken with want to connect with users, but many are struggling to find the right way to do it. Online comments are the most conspicuous form of interactivity on news sites, but they can be frustratingly uncivil if they're not managed properly. And moderating them can be an unwelcome drain on already tight resources.

We at Coral want to help in three main ways: 1) by creating easy-to-integrate open-source software — free to anyone — that will help make maintaining communities scalable; 2) by crowdsourcing best practices that news organizations can use to evolve their interactive strategies; and 3) by providing a space for news publishers to connect with each other and generate ideas about interactive strategy.
