Olympics : Interactive

The New York Times has posted a wonderful interactive map of Beijing Olympics 2008. For all of us who may be riveted by the event this summer, here is a way to get a larger sense of the space in which the events are taking place. If you click on the "New Architecture" option, you can hear Nicolai Ousoussoff, the NYT architecture critic, provide insights into various structures, along with an image slide show. Very nice.

We have to say, of all the daily newspapers, it seems to us that the NYT has been the most successful in using its online media in a very graphically sophisticated and fulsome manner. Yum.
