About This Page
Navigator is the home page used by the newsroom of The New York Times for forays into the Web.
Its primary intent was to give reporters and editors new to the Web a solid starting point for a wide
range of journalistic functions without forcing each of them to spend time hacking around blindly to find
a useful set of links of their own. Its secondary purpose was to show people that there's a lot of fun
and useful stuff going on out there.
The list is by its nature highly selective and constantly changing. Suggestions are always welcome.
