last entry for 2006

This was meant to be my last 2006 entry...

In my last entry for the year I draw your attention to two sources of inspiration from outside the world of journalism.

The first is a quirky and fun site called VidLit that has numerous Flash animated stories. All too often Flash projects at newspapers tend to look similar. Here are some 'well told' stories from 'outside the box.'

The second is an art site by Gregory Colbert from his installation and series entitled "ashes and snow." What really captures my imagination is the way that the site allows you to explore his art as well as being a unified piece of work on its own. This is the kind of site that I wish the newspaper world emulated, even in small ways.
