'Comment is free' is a major expansion of the Guardian newspaper's comment and analysis on the web. It is a collective group blog, bringing together regular columnists from the Guardian and Observer newspapers with other writers and commentators representing a wide range of experience and interests. The newspaper's aim is to host an open-ended space for debate, dispute, argument and agreement and to invite users to comment on everything they read.
The blog is updated regularly through the day, with best blogs featuring on our pick of the day. The site carries all the comment from the Guardian and Observer newspapers, giving readers the chance to comment on these articles directly for the first time.
It's an unparralled committment by a major newspaper to opening up its comment and analyisis pages to wider participation. It's also one of the best uses of the internet that I've seen by a traditional publisher, in this case a newspaper. Defnitely something to watch...and read.
