“Matt Jones is an information architect who has been building spaces for news online since 1995. Some of his first Web design projects were the Times of London and Sunday Times of London’s Web sites. From 1997 to 1999 he was creative director for the BBC News Online’s first Web site, which was widely praised and in 1998 won the first Interactive BAFTA award for an online product. After some time with Sapient and KPMG, he’s working with the BBC again in new media development. His weblog, BlackBeltJones, has become a must-read for Web designers and anyone working on social spaces online. Matt talked with OJR about digital architecture, what led to the BBC News site’s success, where he thinks online news should be heading, and why online editors have to be Sherpas, not censors.”
