While I am on the subject of web design today, there is no way I could leave out MSNBCs spectra visual newsreader. It’s a whole new and fascinating way to read the news. It’s really a grand experiment in information organization and that is something that has always interested me in terms of web design. One of the first things that interested me in Flash, and still does, was the amazing possibilities for how you could file, categorize, display and allow users to access information. It was exciting to see MSNBC take that idea and apply it to their news stories. Spectra is a really fun website to explore and since it is the news you are playing with, you might actually find something interesting to read as well.
