Joe’s visit

Jessica and Joseph

My cousin Joe visited Cleveland on an eastern swing of his trip this summer in which he is conducting a survey of football stadiums and traffic patterns in numerous American cities. Here Jessica shows him around on the shores of Lake Erie near Edgewater Park during his recent visit. You can read Joe’s blog for more about his travels.

New York Times Chrome app: free to read on Firefox

The New York Times has a Google Chrome “web app” which is served from a web site at nytimes.com/chrome. Visitors to that site can browse and read the front page stories but can only browse headlines in other sections. But loading the same page on Firefox redirects to nytimes.com/skimmer which is practically the same as nytimes.com/chrome, with one exception–stories in all sections can be read in full. The lock symbols next to the sections listed on the right side are only present on the Chrome version. Accidental oversight? Result of beta code and fast production? I don’t know. I wonder how much longer the Times company will let their stories be read with such impunity, what with their ridiculous paywall which really serves to make the newspaper reading demographic even older as only people with long term newspaper habits (and a long memory) are likely to feel the need to pay for newspaper content.
