Still working out a few bugs I presume as some things don't work, but the site looks quite bloggy. A note from the paper here about the redesign a year in the works.
I was quite intrigued by the "Most Blogged" category and I clicked over. They list all the articles, but not the blogs that link to them. What a crock of shit.
Our goal when we set out to redesign The Times Web site more than a year ago was to make experiencing The New York Times online simpler and more useful. We hope you conclude that we have done that on the new pages appearing for the first time this month.
We have expanded the page to take advantage of the larger monitors now used by the vast majority of our readers. We've improved the navigation throughout the site so that no matter what page you land on, you can easily dig deeper into other sections or use our multimedia.
We also wanted to give our readers a greater voice and sprinkle a little more serendipity around the site by providing prominent links to a list of most e-mailed and blogged articles, most searched for information and popular movies. A new tab at the top of the page takes you directly to all our most popular features.
NYT.com has been the gold standard in webdesign, but times have changed quickly as they've patched things here and there, but now the Old Grey Lady has changed her clothes with the times.
I hope this editor's note ends up at the top of the "Most Blogged" list. Too bad you won't be able to see what people think of the note though. But maybe NYT.com doesn't care what they think, just that it's being linked to. Links mean traffic and traffic will drive their online ad sales. That's their ultimate concern, money.
