Yahoo's People of the Web

The same team that created a site on Yahoo about war zones is behind the new People of the Web, a Yahoo property that covers people doing interesting things online. It was announced on the Yahoo corporate blog. An introductory video is above.

Stories include text and video elements and allows reader comments. They’ve also integrated MyBlogLog into the site. Example: here’s a story called “Brokeback Hill” about some guy that is “outing” secretly gay politicians.

The site is intersting, but Yahoo’s forays into content creation continue to baffle me. They should get serious about it, or drop the effort.
