For all the media nerds out there: Phillip Mendonça-Vieira of okayfail.com spliced together a video showing about 12,000 screenshots of the NYTimes.com (NYSE: NYT) from September 2010 to July 2011. Watch the full video to see how the headlines, layout and even ad placements have changed throughout the year. One big takeaway? Mendonça-Vieira says, “Traditionally, the purpose of a newspaper’s front page was to entice the reader into delving further into the publication. As a consequence, they are roughly equivalent with whatever the editors thought were the most relevant news items of the day.”
