Neyer has broken the chains of ESPN’s generic blogging protocols and has launched “SweetSpot,” complete with new URL, easier hyperlinking and greater all-around bloggy functionality. Things should stay pretty much the same content-wise — if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it — but word on the street has it that he’ll have something less than what he’s previously had in terms of editorial oversight, which really pretty damn critical to blogging, I’ve found. Time will tell if that’s a good idea from ESPN’s perspective, but it’s not like Neyer is the kind of guy who’s gonna get a company sued or anything.
Or maybe that’s just what he wants us to think . . .
