A Print-Only Newsletter... Just Kidding

I gotta say, the NYT is doing so many things right online these days. For instance, this blog entry from The Caucus strikes me as pitch-perfect:

We are about 45 minutes away from the start of the big Democratic debate in South Carolina. The Timesís Katharine Q. Seelye will be live-blogging all the action from Orangeburg beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

The Timesís Adam Nagourney and Jeff Zeleny will be writing off the debate in South Carolina, for the Web site and of course, for the newspaper.

Note the order. NOTE THE ORDER!

DealBook is also amazing if you’re into that sort of thing.

I agree with your overall assesment; lots going right at the NYT online.

But doesn't even this blog effort reflect something of the paper's traditional distance and hubris? I can't find an archive of the liveblogging Kit Seelye did, and wanted to ask. Maybe it's just me, but I searched for a while and never found a way to ask anybody at the site anything ...

It's a good point -- the NYT's innovations have been almost entirely in format, only sometimes in tone and approach, and pretty much not at all in process. Same old one-way system.
