Even With a Cleanup, Spilled Oil Stays With Us


Usually I either tweet or blog or pop something in between here on Posterous, but this article printed in today’s New York Times warrants an exception. It’s not only the quality content that appeals; it’s the quality of the choices made in the use of format/media/channel.

Yes, it’s in dense print with photo images for those relaxing with their Sunday papers away from electronic media. And a reader will learn much from that alone. But the online version at nytimes.com (click link under photo) adds much more meaning and understanding with multimedia images and interactive infographics.

Once again, in the midst of a glut of words and images with little meaning, I am reminded of the value of professional journalism.
