An archival photo from The New York Times shows news pictures being sorted in the newspaper’s photo “morgue,” which houses millions of images. Here they are — several each week — for you to see. Welcome to The Lively Morgue. Photo: The New York Times 

The New York Times’ new archive photoblog is great, and it got a prime promotional spot on the paper’s front page. Awesome.

UPDATE: NY Times takes blame for e-mail blast, says it wasn’t spam

An annoying story, but a fun one, admittedly. Update: Here’s Amy’s story.

Fred Tomaselli paints intricate psychedelic patterns onto covers of the New York Times.

He thinks he’s clever, huh? We bet he’s never drawn an elaborate roller coaster on a newspaper page, like Express’ very own Coaster Doodler does.

This is a weird feeling. We’re glad that David Carr liked the story we found (via Charles Apple) enough to retweet it, but a little bittersweet about the nature of the story. We hope that Carr’s 300,000+ followers get out of it the same thing we did — a strong sense of remorse and appreciation for great storytelling. We’re glad we were able to share this great piece of work the San Jose Mercury News put together.

Notice something different about today’s page? Perhaps a little faded and gray? Here’s why. That’s right: Newseum’s testing watermarks. Eww. Our take: There has to be a way for Newseum to deal with this on the server end (say, preventing mass downloaders) without sullying the great pages they offer up to the world.
