Capital New York has an overview of forthcoming changes to the Eater site:
Another important element of Eater's integration into the Vox corporate model is its impending transition to Vox Media's proprietary content system, Chorus, developed originally for Vox Media sports site SB Nation and iterated in its technology site, The Verge, and its video game site, Polygon. The switch gets pulled later this year, and promises to revolutionize Eater's familiar format, which developed organically over time from its original, reverse-chronological "river" of story teasers, a relic of the style observed by most blogs founded at the turn of the century.
I can't help but chuckle at the words "relic" and "turn of the century". It wasn't that long ago. You'd think they're still on scrolls and parchment.
There's also a teaser on their "review of the future":
“We wanted to change the way we look at restaurant reviews,” Kludt told Capital. “The way other publications conduct restaurant reviews is they write a review, and that's the review, for years. But as you know, restaurants are living, breathing organisms that are constantly changing. Your experience as the diner can change from any given month or any given year and Chorus gives us the tool to [publish] reviews that can evolve, be updated frequently or annotated.”
If it works, this is the real shot across the New York Times' bow, which is still stuck in its anachronistic three-visits rule, which severely limits re-reviews.
