A Multi-Media Version of an Article in "The New York Times Magazine"


On October 25, 2013 I enjoyed reading on The New York Times website an illustrated article from the October 27, 2013 issue of the New York Times Magazine. The article by Jeff Himmelman concerning the politics of Ayungin Shoal in the Spratly Islands located in a remote corner of the South China Sea, 105 nautical miles from the Philippines, was entitled "A Game of Shark and Minnow." It was illustrated with photographs and video by Ashley Gilbertson. The presentation of the article involved a fascinating combination of video, sound and text, using full-screen videos and sound captioned with text, interspersed with the text of the story. Though I assume that this was not the first online magazine article to incorporate these features it was the first magazine article that I read on the web to use the features in this manner.  In my opinion the presentation was remarkably effective.
