Two posts of great interest today:

Top memo right now: The NYT is officially merging its print and online newsrooms.

On E-Media Tidbits: Adrian Holovaty is the new editor of editorial innovations (!!!) at the WaPo.

Rad x 2.

Wannabes! The NYT's merely following the example laid out by The Fresno Bee, whose imminent merging of its print and online newsrooms has sent shock waves through the industry.

I hope the WaPo gives Adrian lots and lots of room to play. He can totally give them the jump on that whole dynamically-assembled stories thing. And the stories will be mapped. And linked to All-Music Guide. That will be sweeeeet.

Seriously -- Adrian is basically going to make EPIC. Like, tomorrow.
