After months of planning, the Boston Globe unveiled its new website today. On first impression, I am impressed. I have tried it on a desktop, on a laptop, and on an iPhone, and it worked well across all platforms. (I will try my iPad as soon as I get home.)
The look is, as promised, very sharp and uncluttered. It looks a lot like the version of its parent publication NYTimes when viewed through a special extension on Chrome called Ochs.
For now, all I will add is these two thoughts:
–I wish the Globe well in tapping a new revenue stream. (They need one!) Original reporting ain’t cheap, and it should not be free.
–For now, I would say it is a good start, but it’s probably too soon to really judge.
