New York Times goes to the 'hood

 New York Times LogoIf The New York Times fails, it won’t be for lack of effort. The cash-strapped Gray Lady launched an aggressive new  content-driven effort today, aimed at more engaged readers and hopefully, new advertisers.

UK newspapers have a good year online

It seems that, despite declining print circulations, the UK's newspapers have managed to build up their online audiences. According to stats from Nielsen Online, the top ten newspaper sites have seen a 23% increase in traffic.
