I've talked about this before.  But the whole point of internet bulletin boards is to repeat yourself, so:

 

There was this article this week about a topic I couldn't be more interested in:  how climate change is threatening prehistoric sites on the Orkney Islands.

 

In its web version, the article is accompanied by a series of big moving photographs.

 

At least on my big desktop screen, they nauseate me.  I mean literally:  the movement of the photos makes me nauseous.

 

I have to say, I've been to Skara Brae and other sites pictured.  Walking around them did not make me nauseous the way these moving photographs did.  (So yes, I'm happy to say, I did not vomit all over Skara Brae.)

Considering how much people in the Orkneys drink, I wouldn’t be surprised.

A very well-written (to this reader) article, and disturbing on so many levels...

As an often critic of the NY Times, it's only fair to praise the Grey Lady when it does a great job.

 

Yesterday's extensive piece on the saving of Notre Dame was outstanding - as brilliant a piece of journalism witnessed in a long time - Bravo!!!!

I was saying that to another friend - when they put together the graphics, videos, pictures, etc. in that way, they do a good job.
