I've seen quite a few references in the mmm...brains... link stream this past week to the new New York Times building. It's impressive. It has it's own website for chist's sake, and this video gives you a feel for what it's like to work there.
But I have to wonder... History is littered with great monuments from the heights of civilizations which subsequently collapsed. Is this possibly overcompensation in the face of imminent decline? It's my understanding that the entire newspaper industry is pretty much in dire straights. What's in NYT's secret sauce?
