March 4, 1968: “Don’t call them paper dresses,” began a report about a line of disposable dresses that could be reimagined as posters. The one seen here features Cape Kennedy. Another? An Allen Ginsberg poem. “The intent is for pretty  young things to buy them on impulse and wear them to the beach or parties,” the reporter wrote. “Matrons, stay away.” Photo: Arthur Brower/The New York Times  

The coyotes have demonstrated versatile dramatic chops, sometimes howling in sorrowful cries, and at other times displaying a wicked sense of comic timing. At the emotional climax of “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” they seemed to laugh — emitting a series of yaps that sounded like an insane, maniacal cackle — as if delighting in the grief of the characters onstage.

Death of Osama Bin Laden: How Significant a Moment?

drewvigal:

We’ve done a number of creative presentations of user comments and participation in the past including “What One Word Describes Your Current State of Mind?” (via Gabe Dance) to “Health Care Conversations.” (via Tom Jackson). These features are also known as Word Train and Bento Box, respectively.

And we’ve also done user-contributed photo galleries as well. But clearly the UG-photos we were soliciting for this specific news event wasn’t visual nor was it capturing the balance of the global reaction.

Early Monday, the multimedia team met to discuss how we might add to our coverage and possibly capture the pulse of the polarizing discussion in reaction to the death of Osama Bin Laden. The more we discussed the responses from our readers and elsewhere, the more the discussion we were having in itself was polarizing. So we explored the possibility of creating a new “Bento Box” but with only two rooms and allow people to have a conversation based on their point of view. We decided it was too limiting. And then Jon:

suggested that we make an emotion bar and let people place comments on it (and then only read the comments by theirs).

What Jon Huang ended up producing within 12 hours was “The Death of a Terrorist: A Turning Point?” With Aron Pilhofer, who as he puts it “just did the plumbing,” we ended up publishing this opinion matrix which visualized over 13 thousand responses.

A round of applause goes to Jon Huang for his creative approach in gauging our readers reactions to Bin Laden’s death.

Watch the hawk cam and see live updates from the nest. They appear to be sleeping now. It was a big day. Sweet dreams, sweet baby hawk.

Exclusive! A close-up of mother and baby hawk. We’re thrilled for Bobby and Violet. Happy Mother’s Day!
