Robert Basler is a 27-year veteran of Reuters, and spent nine years in online news, working with the team that pioneered such revolutionary milestones as real-time online news, online photos, raw video online, info-graphics, presentation in multiple languages, etc. Basler does a daily reader feedback blog called "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," often highlighting highly embarrassing errors from the news file. He created a number of Reuters Oddly Enough products featuring bizarre and quirky news, and still writes the syndicated Oddly Enough blog.
