The New York Times launched a redesigned website a few minutes ago. Many of the changes are subtle, but they’ve added a few new features which I really appreciate. First, they now have a dedicated area of the site to show video clips. And more importantly, they have a “most popular” area that includes most emailed, most blogged, and most searched articles. I like the directions the Times is going – and I also note that they are now experimenting with linking to blog posts directly from articles.
Some of the changes and new features you’ll see are a refreshed look, streamlined navigation, expanded use of video and other multimedia and better ways to see what other readers are looking at, searching for and talking about.
How long before they display blog content directly within NYTimes.com, perhaps via blogburst?
