USA Today website innovates with horizontal experience, information layers | Poynter.

USA Today introduced a new version of its website Saturday, one day after it debuted a new design in print.

Here are five reasons the reinvention works for me.

Information Architects Japan » iA Notebook » Washington Post Redesign as a Wiki

After our last posts on the future of news we have been asked again and again to illustrate: 1. What does a newspaper as a wiki look like? 2. How can newspapers bring their online and offline identity together? 3. What is appropriate advertisement? 4. What is an easy to read newspaper website?

Building Newspaper 2.0 at hyalineskies

Before a few weeks ago, those reading a significant amount of mainstream media content online primarily saw Jurassic-period philosophies from those at the top of information gathering: it was an image of aging, traditionally-oriented journalistic institutions striving to understand (and fitfully adapt to) the distribution of information on the Web. As always, sites such as and were laughably far behind: two of the most visited news sites online carried the same left-aligned, 800×600-optimised, heavily-table-based layouts that designers (or overly zealous Web enthusiasts) would have called “so Web 1.0.”
