A recent article in New York magazine looked at the group of techies/journalists behind the interactive features on the NYTimes.com. Now that the print division and online division are merged into one newsroom, the Times is off and running with their Website (finally!).  Read the piece to get a good idea on what working on a  Website is like. It also mentions what I talked about in class when I reminisce about the “old days” of the  late ’90s, when the Web staff was ostracized physcially and socially in the newsroom – a lot of resistance to putting newspapers up on the Web. Changing that culture in the newsroom has been a slow process but for the most part, everyone has come around. It is the future.
