If you’re not familiar with Curley, he’s the guy who wracked up awards with his revamp of Lawrence.com and has transformed the Naples Daily News‘ online presence. It will be interesting to see what changes Curley makes to the sites of the Washingtonpost.com, Slate and Newsweek.com.
I wonder if his speedy style will fly in a big corporation. In the Poynter story, Curley says:
“But if there is one thing that I hope that maybe we can add to that equation is a dash of nimbleness. I love having ideas at lunch and then going live with them at 5 p.m. We want to build creative things, important things, useful things and get them done in weeks, not months.”
I love that attitude. Hopefully he’ll be able to keep his rhythm going up there. The news industry can use a bit more nimbleness with the “interesting times” we’re in.
