More insidery information about the Oregonian dining section's shift in focus: Reader-generated reviews are on the horizon. Over at PortlandFood.org, blogger extraordinarie Nick Zukin posted the following private e-mail exchange between someone at the O and a prospective writer-turned-tipster: "One feature we'd like to have is short reviews of Clackamas County restaurants from the public, about three or four paragraphs' worth. I can't pay you or cover your expenses, unfortunately; all I can do is credit you with the review. We're also launching community-specific websites in the very near future that will have widgets which will allow you to post reviews yourself, with photos. Ditto on the payment for that."
