  1. What’s the difference between r/creepshots and a national newspaper?

    I’ve become worryingly inured that the Mail, Sun etc are full of scantily clad young women, but why the Telegraph thinks this is news is beyond me. I’d say “the sooner the hypocritical newspapers die the better” but given, for example, the Mail’s online success, that won’t stop this.

  2. Where is the Roger Ebert’s commissioning editor of games? - newsmary

    I’m always bemused by the game coverage in newspapers etc being relegated to a tiny corner (at best) when, for example, “alternative” music and “art house” films get prominent coverage, when both are less mainstream than popular games.

  3. New Yorker | PressJunkie

    I’m not saying it’s great design, but I like that as an example of a very different front page for a WordPress site.

  4. Home | The British Newspaper Archive

    Looks very impressive - loads of scanned and searchable British newspapers from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. It costs to view the results though (from £6.95 for two days) so not for casual browsing.

  5. Delayed Gratification | The UK’s Quarterly Almanac | Last to breaking news

    Sounds brilliant: “a quarterly publication from The Slow Journalism Company. Each issue distils three months of the UK’s political, cultural, scientific and sporting life into a witty magazine of record.”

  6. The Guardian iPad App | The Ministry of Type

    A comprehensive, and very positive, overview of the user’s experience of the app’s design.

  7. The last spasms of a dying business model – Why the Guardian iPad App is a step into the past « The Tall Designer

    Criticisms of the Guardian’s iPad app, almost all of which I entirely disagree with.

  8. How the Guardian’s iPad app changed the way that I consumed news

    Martin Belam on the Guardian’s iPad app, and how it’s… well, it says in the title. (via Preoccupations)

  9. Discombobulated: Guardian iPad: Product challenges

    Jonathan Moore on the process of developing the new app, from a product point of view. (via Preoccupations)

  11. Mark Porter » Blog Archive » New work: The Guardian iPad app

    His description of the design work behind the new app, which is very good indeed.

  12. How to Build a Newsroom Time Machine

    A student journalism class puts together a newspaper using manual typewriters, scalpels, glue, analogue photography, etc. Sounds like a good exercise and not just because I’m old(ish). (via Waxy)

  13. 4 key pieces of audience engagement missing from Andy Rutledge’s news redux

    Also, Martin Belam’s good critique of Andy Rutledge’s unofficial redesign of a New York Times page.

  14. Design View / Andy Rutledge - News Redux

    For completeness, I might as well link to the post that started this flurry of digital news design posts, Andy Rutledge’s attempt to redesign a page of the New York Times.

  15. Redesigning And Re-Thinking The News | Drawar

    More new stuff on redesigning news websites. This is all part of a good discussion, but it doesn’t feel like we’ve moved on much. Yet. (via Daring Fireball)

  16. Designing a big news site is about more than beauty » Nieman Journalism Lab » Pushing to the Future of Journalism

    Good thoughts on why designing news websites is hard. Maybe it’s impossible with one design: too many competing stakeholders and use cases. (via Daring Fireball)

  17. How To Run A News Site And Newspaper Using WordPress And Google Docs - 10,000 Words

  18. The Online Photographer: The World’s Best Photography Magazine Tries a Different Revenue Model

    For the bit about “vampire” publications, which rely on the journalism of others. eg, ‘The Week’. I reckon, when/if increasing numbers of traditional publishers charge money, there will be more of these vampires — well curated, re-written content, without original journalism, on a tiny budget.

  19. LRB · John Lanchester · Let Us Pay

    On the future of the newspaper industry. Many good nuggets, including: “New York Times, if it stopped printing a physical edition of the paper, could afford to give every subscriber a free Kindle. Not the bog-standard Kindle, but the one with free global data access. And not just one Kindle, but four Kindles. And not just once, but every year.”

  20. Why the iPad Newspaper is Doomed

    I’m no fan of Murdoch, but I suspect this article is all wrong: Daily editions could be good; Unfocused content can be interesting; News Corp is often right; Linkability may not matter to normal people. (via @revdancatt)

  21. Today’s News • on iPhone & iPad • Powered by the Guardian

    An iPad app that gives you a way to read The Guardian very much like my “Today’s Guardian” site. The sincerest form of flattery, I guess.

  22. The Twitter Phil Gyford Daily ( is very interesting but… suffers from every problem I wrote about re finishability, readability, friction… I don’t want to read any of it. It also obscures the context (the tweets).

  23. Doonesbury Comic Strip, June 22, 2010 on

    “It looks like a limp iPad.” “It’s called a newspaper, Sam! Go ahead, pick it up!”

  24. Final edition: Twilight of the American newspaper—By Richard Rodriguez (Harper’s Magazine)

    Lovely article that is more a reminiscence of a lost San Francisco and childhood than it is another “we must save newspapers” plea.

  25. PersonalNews

    Kind of odd “individual newspaper” that combines your choice of pages from some newspapers.

  26. Express & Star

    “Britain’s biggest selling evening newspaper”, their website now powered by WordPress.

  27. John Graham-Cumming: Utter crap reporting from The Daily Telegraph

  28. Dave Eggers on his favorite things about newspapers | Books | Interview | The A.V. Club

    An interview. I like, and share, his bemusement at newspapers’ reliance on wire stories when the world isn’t short of writers. (via Tom Taylor)

  29. K-punk: London litened

    On how much of a local newspaper is actual news, and suggesting that they should be non-profit organisations.

  32. The 3 key parts of news stories you usually don’t get at

    We get “What just happened”. We don’t get “The longstanding facts”, “How journalists know what they know” and “The things we don’t know”. Good stuff. (via Daring Fireball)

  33. New ways to save the newspaper - azeem.azhar

    Interesting thoughts from Azeem about what things it’s worth the Observer (or a similar newspaper) doing.

  34. Newspaper Club - A work in progress

    Just down the corridor Russell, Ben and Tom are doing some marvellous things, and sharing their progress. This will be awesome.

  35. The Printed Blog | Home

    A trial of a twice-daily very local newspaper in some US locations using content from blogs. It would be difficult to be any worse than, say, Metro, London Lite, Evening Standard, etc. in London.

  36. Noisy Decent Graphics: All the ephemera that’s fit to print

    I haven’t even seen one of these (yet) but it’s already one of my favourite objects. I’ve wanted to do something like this for ages but Russell and Ben actually did it, and did it much better than I’d ever have done it.

  37. Tabbloid

    Will regularly email you a PDF of your chosen RSS feeds. Couldn’t be much simpler. (via Russell Davies)

  38. Russell Davies: meet the new schtick (2)

  42. Newspapers and magazines - Digital National library of Serbia

    Scanned and browsable issues, from the avant-garde ‘Zenit’ to ‘Advanced Beekeeping’. Awesome (especially if you read Serbian).

  43. Bigger than Doonesbury (Pete Ashton’s Weblog)

    On Doonesbury disappearing from the new Guardian, and then being reinstated.


    Actually, the whole site looks great. Any weblog with a post about the ‘LA Times’ introducting vertical rules into their 1-pica gutters gets my vote.


    Collection of eagles from the banners of US newspapers’ election editions.

  46. Daily Mirror: How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?

    Well, you have to wonder. Something in the water? Cosmic rays? 59,054,087 radio receivers embedded in fillings?
