A new way to surf the New York Times

If you’re a news hound you won’t want to miss what Dave Winer shipped yesterday. It lets you dive into the New York Times by clicking on an outline. Thanks Dave, this is MUCH nicer than even the far flashier, but much more heavyweight “readers” that Microsoft did for the New York Times.

But, the problem is that most people won’t understand this cause it looks too simple.

If you don’t get what Dave is doing, that’s OK. It always takes ME about a year to really get his more disruptive stuff. I thought RSS was too simple when I first saw it too.
