The Future Of New York Times, In Situ

1 Comment

Robert Scoble went to the New York Times (NYSE: NYT) R&D lab (run under Michael Zimbalist) and did a bunch of videos about the various products, services and devices the team there is working on. The details on some of these are here, and the videos done by Scoble on his N95, are embedded below:

By the way, NYT launched its TimesMachine historical archives service today, which is a service that has full page scans of all the NYT newspapers from 1851-1922 (the public domain archives).

Robert Schoble appears to live in a different 'time dimension' to the rest of us mere mortals. His work is always great. But Sooooo prolific. How does he find the hours in a day to do ALL that he does and still retain the quality?
