Olympic Pictograms

Steven Heller at the New York Times takes a neat look at the history of the Olympic event icons that have been used over the last century or so. Some are pretty weird, but some are pretty cool – and this is a great way to present them. It’s informative (as it should be) and visually interesting, creating a nice blend of technology and information.

Satellite Photo Comparisons from Haiti

The New York Times has a very cool and very informative page up that has before and after satellite photos from Haiti – moving a slider across the image reveals the pre and post earthquake images. Really neat use of technology to help tell the story.

Thanks to Meghan Pittman for pointing this out.
