John Walter is the Executive Editor of Agriculture.com but in reality he’s the philosopher for the home of Successful Farming online.
John is showing off his new iPad which he used to show me some of the new features on the website. John says there are three legs to the the website, the farmer, the publisher and the agrimarketer and they all interact on an equal basis. He calls it the Co-Active Network as shown by the graphic.
Anyone can create a “persona” on the site that then allows them to use the interactive tools for the purposes of activities like commenting or selling something via a classified ad. Farmers can even comment on the markets. I’m betting there will be some very interesting thoughts shared there! John Walter Interview
