Ståle Grut – Broken Promise Land

Ståle Grut


From The Conference September 07, 2018

“This is all feels like a dream now, but technology and society went along really great some years ago.”

Norwegian journalist Stråle Grut’s work for NRKbeta have been described as an experiment on how to make a better comment section. By creating a comment section quiz, it ensures that people know what they are commenting on online. It’s a simple solution to a complex problem, and also a way to improve internet debate by requiring participants to answer these few basic questions first. It also generates people to reflect more, make them become more rational in their thinking and, hopefully, behave better on social medias. The experiment have been referred as ”the best new journalism idea ever” by the American futurist Amy Webb.
