South Africa Times launches homeless blog

Little to do with student journalism, this, but worth paying attention to. The Pigeon Post, set up by The Times in South Africa, is a blog written by Alfred Pigeon, a homeless man.

It’s unclear how much input The Times has on Pigeon’s entries, although they appear largely unedited.

I’ll be keeping an eye on this. At the very least, it’s an interesting look at how a well-run newspaper website can use it’s mainstream appeal to highlight the plight of a minority.
