Watch The Times Web Designers Tinker, Iterate
View Article Source|
The New York Occasions (the paper of the refresh button) likes to mix things up, and the paper's web style is no exception.
Later this summer, The Times is launching a new public beta website to test out new functions on self-selecting readers before incorporating them into nytimes.com, Nat Ives reports.
The test website, which will probably be caled "Beta620" in reference towards the paper's address on Eighth Avenue, will be utilized to try out new functions like those boxes that only recently began zooming out from the side of article pages.
That feature was the result of a "tech challenge," according to Denise Warren, a senior vice president at The Times. That's what the paper calls internal contests to produce new functions.
Just this weekend Ben Zimmer's "On Language" column seized on the idea of iterating and web design. "Itís the way from the Internet these days: everything is iterating," he wrote.
Interating correct prior to your eyes!
