Stop Publishing Web Pages

Anil Dash makes some good points here regarding how we consume the flow of information today. But I think there's still a place for stuff to be filtered by the publisher. I would rather, for instance, that the Guardian's excellent mobile site gave me access to the sections of the paper as they're printed, like the weekend supplements, rather than the just the broader categories the individual articles slot into. I don't want to have to work to get that comfortable experience. #link
