TIME magazine’s new “scrapbook”

By Chris Daly 

I can’t really make heads nor tails of TIME’s recent announcement, but the venerable news weekly seems to be trying to do something about its own history in journalism, by creating a new tumblr site. Check it out.

I wish them well. And I hope to figure out what they have in mind by watching it unfold. Meanwhile, you can always use the TIME archive. The archive is pretty good, but the articles appear in the backdrop of the current website, so they are all ripped from the context of the original issues in which they appeared. The results can be pretty disorienting, but still. . . it is free.
