Content Tasting

It’s the tapas of daily news…The NYTimes new “Times Skimmer.” I’ve just been sampling the new interface, all horizontal and above the fold.  All about bite-sized we are, shortest and concisest snippets we can serve to our audience.

I like it….I like the look and feel of it…Still classic news feel, but built to appeal to both visual and textual users, eh?

I am a bit disappointed that when I scroll along the right-hand margin and click the Blogs tab that the “skimmer” doesn’t display a neat blockade of each of their most recent posts. Instead you have to click a particular blog to engage the skimmer– when it’s loaded with the most recent summaries of the blog.
