CBC.ca and National Post join to create Olympics website

When you hear the words “jam-packed” and “co-branded” in a press release describing a website, first thing you smell is the panicky fear. The second is the javascript errors.

    And CBC wants rent for posting, or re-posting their stories
    See little line at top of stories
    “New licensing option: POST all or part of this article on a web site, intranet or blog. ”

    Which leads to :

    1 month CAD125.00, 2 – 3 months CAD175.00

    Best of luck.

    Content sharing, I think the business brains call it.

    Any producers or writers or CMG members give a crap?

    Adding the NYT stuff was probably the least painful part of the process.

    This is a real mindblower. If seeing that subdomain


    isn’t fried enough, all those bitchen interactives come from the NYT!

    Does that mean they count as CBC content in light of how much CBC.ca talent they poached?

    Merry UX-Mas to all my Manhattan hosers!

      If by “poached” you mean, “fled the CBC like half-starved rats,” you’d be right.

      Merry Christmas to you, too!!

        They were fed regularly, the mandatory hoop-jumping was probably a factor though.

    The link to Vancouver Now on cbc.ca sports now links to http://nationalpost.cbc.ca/olympics.

    And that page says:
