Newspaper journalists have grown accustomed to finding more creativity outside their walls -- and often of the "creative destruction" variety. But instead of seeking shelter inside, Guardian Editor Alan Rusbridger has embraced an "open journalism" approach, which aims to collaborate with outsiders.
