This looks really neat. I'll check it out in further depth later when I'm not being crushed under the weight of convoluted potential research papers, but first glance suggests neatness. It might even be rad, but I'm not willing to make that leap yet. Thanks, srboisvert ;)

Looks a bit... rich. I'll definitely be coming here when I need some serious analysis of world events - hope it sticks around.

What's really cool about this, and I think it qualifies as rad, is that they have the entire blog entry, so it acts as an aggregator for each story. You don't have to click through to the individual blogs at all unless you want to comment or read the comments. For some blogs, of course you would want to, for instance they list amberglow's good post about Delay, and the entry is just his text, without any of the things added by other MeFites. But for getting a sense of how people are addressing a particular article, it's quite good.

And then of course, bloggers may well have tracked down articles at other sources about things that they care about, so many of the entries really pull in a lot of information.

Great post!

Now I just have to decide whether to bookmark it in the Blogs folder or the News folder...

Very interesting. I'd love to see more of these for other publications.

What a great idea! Hopefully the NYT won't give them any grief over it.

p3t3...agreed. It's a tentacled octoblog.
It smacks of TMI in a way. But it's also a great idea. I'll have to have a good ferret around and get my bearings.

The New York Times for Dummies! seems it is useful for those who need a secondary source to exaplain things to them or to let them know what they are suposed to think about an article in the newspaper.

Yes Postroad, the intelligent reader should never bother with other opinions.
