Multimedia Debates

MULTIMEDIA DEBATES….I learned an interesting thing yesterday: the New York Times has a very cool “interactive video” feature that it’s created for this year’s presidential debates. Basically, it’s a transcript of each debate linked to a video, and if you click on a part of the transcript it takes you directly to that section of video. The most recent Democratic debate is here; the most recent Republican debate is here.

I’d never noticed this before, and it’s pretty handy. Just thought I’d let everyone else know about it too.

UPDATE: The Times’ debate roundup page has links to all four of the interactive videos they’ve done so far.
