One of the websites that I read regularly is one maintained by the Nieman Journalism Lab. (Hey, I can think of worse ways to waste my time….)
Then there’s this comment/discussion about the whole pay-for-content-and-the-future-of-newspapers.
But I loved this in-depth look at the new “Article Skimmer” created by the one of the software developers at the New York Times. I tried out the Skimmer, and I’ve gotta say: I like it. As the audio commentary in the Nieman piece notes, the current NYT online layout tends, inadvertently or otherwise, to favor some pieces and sections over others. I gather that this feature is not fully functional (if only because I can’t find a way to link to it other than from the original blog entry, plus not all the paper’s sections are included in the Skimmer).
