Evidence The New York Times eats its young: "Oh no-ho-ho, you won’t be getting a nice review from us just because you’re considered our best young journalist, Brian Stelter.” (ht @DJBentley)

Most interesting way to reveal a new album title: Put it in the New York Times classifieds’ “Notices & Lost and Found” category, to ensure nobody ever sees it — unless, like Vampire Weekend, you drop hints.

"Among N.B.A. teams, the Lakers are famous for their fame: they have Jack and Penny and Denzel and a whole human gallery of plastic-surgery glamour; the Knicks have Spike and Woody and Chris Rock and a rotating roster of Broadway stars. The Thunder has Wayne Coyne, the singer of the alternative-rock band the Flaming Lips.”(ht mcoatney)

Just an update to our post from earlier: The New York Times has created a Google Maps mashup explaining the zone system being used in NYC. As this isn’t going to be as useful if the power goes out, we’re going to leave up the original PDF, which includes locations of shelters and precautions you should take, for purposes of printing out. But this should help. (thanks waterman12053 for the find)

Former New York Times publisher Arthur O. Sulzberger, who led the paper as its publisher for 29 years (between 1963 and 1992), and was the company’s chairman until 1997, has died. He was 86 years old. To give you an idea of his impact on the paper: He introduced the paper’s incredibly popular (and widely-imitated) feature sections, and also played a role in the paper’s deciding to print the Pentagon Papers in 1971. During this period, the paper grew to be one of the largest and most-well-regarded in the world. An important journalistic figure who will be missed.

A game of what’s-the-difference: Two Bill Keller articles, one major difference

Top: A Bill Keller article about Wikileaks, suggesting that the Times’ financial mechanisms were being targeted by the State Department. It uses this line: "I find myself in the awkward position of having to defend WikiLeaks."

Bottom: A recent Keller article about something else. Structurally, it looks almost exactly the same, except it doesn’t sport a wonky-looking Tweet button right below the byline. Hop to the jump to find out the big difference between the two.
