I want crowd-speaks.
Yes I am part of a crowd. Undifferentiated slurry of humanity, with collective wisdom and intelligence and blah blah blah etc etc.
What I want is my name under your masthead. And the same opportunity for anyone with integrity, an idea and a little expertise. The floodgates have been open for 15 to 20 years.
There's still an opportunity to make some of that stand out from the rest using the NYT brand. But you have to give up some or most of the elitism, but not the intelligence and integrity.
