The New York Times reports on the rise of user-generated media. What follows the avalanche of amateur content? The need for good editors. That’s what we want SMITH to do: open up the floodgates to a world of smart and hungry creators, all the while having editors sort through, filter, and work with our community of readers to help you tell the stories of your lives. Along the way, we want to work with you as we show the world that the line between the professional and the amateur is merging more and more each moment.
