ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Set to music by Justice, this time lapse video of the New York Times' homepage covers stories, pics and otherstuff from September 2010 to July 2011.
While I liked the video (especially seeing when giant banners take over the top of the page), I’m curious as to what it would have looked like with Adblock installed.
I think, howver, that I got more out of learning there’s apparently a new Justice album out. Woot! It certainly sounds good, and if it’s even half as good as ‘cross’ was, it’ll be well worth picking up.
Here is something serious is the same trail of though. A crew providing un-di services and converting digital online content to tangible manuscripts http://www.oree.storijapan.net/more.html#mozTocId755339
Hmm. What was the point of that? The front page of the NYT is a beautiful thing, but not when you slam all the pictures together like that. I don’t see how that kind of rapid fire juxtaposition of images gives you any new insight on the subject. If you are looking for insight about the front page, you need to see “Page One.” Very good movie. The whole process of reporting/writing/editing/producing the front page is really something to see. David Carr vaporizes a couple of new media weenies, which is worth the price of admission in itself. The movie actually makes a very convincing case for the viability of the institution, even in the new media marketplace. The NYT portal page is just the beginning of all that is awesome there, and unfortunately this little video doesn’t begin to do it justice. (Although I admit, I didn’t see the whole thing. It was giving me a headache.)
In Soviet Russia, we do NYT to Justice!
it’s engaging to consider how static ad placement can be on web pages. we naturally learn where the ads are, deem the information useless and move straight to the content. yet marketing teams continue to place the ads in the exact same postion. but I guess it works if they still do it. if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
Not sure why, but I`m fascinated by time lapses. The Yahoo/Google homepage evolution “over the years” is also interesting. I`m currently following CNN.com`s time lapse, in real time.. it`s slowly turning into YouTube.
