More human than human is not necessarily better

My employer’s overhauled “My UNC” page has a new aggregator, but it doesn’t seem to be much of an improvement. It offers this headline and link to a letter to the editor that asks the campus paper to cover an out-of-state story. (DTH is short for Daily Tar Heel.) Is this really the top news on campus today?

In a related development, Pam Robinson at Words at Work points us to a Business Week piece that argues that editors will no longer be necessary in the glorious age of technology. I, for one, do not welcome our aggregate overlords.
