I usually get all curmudgeon-y when my favorite media goes and redesigns itself, after which i get used to it and abandon my disdain. well here's an instance where a redesign is sitting right with me from day one. the new layout of nytimes.com is fine, but what i'm really digging is the new functionality. most particularly, the expanded "most popular" section, which lists the top 10 most emailed, most blogged about, and most searched articles. i always used to refer to the most emailed section as a way of figuring out what to read because it was almost like a blog-within-a site, but now that they've expanded this functionality so much i imagine i'll find myself reading even more of the site. its a great step forward for them in allowing readers to determine the priorities of the paper.
