Pathfinder Network News
The TIME folks have been busy! The
scandal supersite at one time or another has involved people from all walks of
Pathfinder life. It was kicked off as a single page by Dick Duncan,
Flora Garcia, Mark Coatney and Meg Siesfeld, with Ronnie
Peters, Paul Notzold and Alex Juarez working on design. As the
scandal escalated, the site was blown into the "supersite" category. Josh
Quittner and Dick Duncan oversaw the development of the supersite; Mac
McKean was the senior producer on the project; Mo Barrett (who
created much of the content) and Larry Hewitt were producers. Mark
Coatney added to the "Law & History" area of the site daily, and also served
as lead news editor. Christina Tzouras contributed design revisions;
Sean Stafford and Tim Ungs were the production gods; Melissa
Ciano was responsible for all the photos; Jonathan Gregg copy-edited
and did some blurb and headline writing. There were many writers that
contributed -- most stories were done by Chris Taylor, Frank
Pellegrini and Mark Coatney, with contributions from Michael Goldfarb
and Mac McKean.

The other big news at Money is that they're rolling out rev. 1 of their mutual fund finder, which was developed in conjunction with Thomson Financial. It offers users a way to screen Thomson/CDA's 7500-fund database on dozens of factors ranging from performance, to risk, to types of stocks held, to expenses. The folks at Money expect this will be one of the most thorough fund screeners on the Net, but what will really set it apart is that it was designed by Money's chief fund writer Jason Zweig, and features his explanations and advice every step of the way.
