"102 Minutes," New York Times

The New York Times continues to do a great job of using audio commentary from its reporters to create compelling online packages (read about its narrated slide shows). To complement its powerful newspaper story about the last moments in the World Trade Center before it collapsed, Nytimes.com combined the reporters’ first-person narration with graphics into a Flash interactive that, while simple, was powerful. The package also included intimate, emotional transcripts of the final e-mails and cell phone conversations of those trapped in the towers; and forums that have drawn hundreds of comments, including ones from victims’ families. Writes one reader: “We must thank the New York Times for this masterpiece. . . These words are as searing as the television images.”
