Clever, innovative, but somehow not radical enough. In a nutshell, that’s what I think of the NY Times’ latest attempt to weather the storm in newspaper journalism. In an attempt to deliver “a digital experience that reads like a newspaper, updates like a website and delivers like, well, like the New York Times”, the newspaper is revamping its website.
While I applaud the NY Times’ entrepreneurial spirit, I wonder though, how effective is it to transfer a newspaper design to an online environment? If newsmedia go online, how much longer will we need/expect/rely on newspaper sections, news beats, editorials, and the like? That being said, crossword lovers rejoice!
