New York Time iPad App…Oops!

Tweet From NetworkWorld: Many, if not most iPad subscribers have been unable to access Times articles since Friday, when an update pushed through Apple’s App Store rendered the application unable to display content.

New York Times Leveraging Twitter As A Content Database

Tweet Instead of building our own system, we asked reporters to post their updates to Twitter and use hashtags to associate each update with a race.

NYT’s Room For Debate Is Open

Advice From Wired To Google

Tweet Wired has some advice for Google on the newspaper industry. While the New York Times was given an early death sentence this week by The Atlantic, Google CEO Eric Schmidt was asked by Fortune magazine what Google should do to save the ailing newspaper industry. He reiterated his previous “moral imperative” sentiment to do […]

The Grey Lady

Tweet The Daily Beast spotlights a new book about the front pages of the New York Times over the years. Peter Osnos says it shows the best of the NYT and what is good about newspapers. As an artifact for a history buff, it is worth every penny. The immediacy of next day coverage of […]
