The New York Times Compendium

posted by Jason Kottke Dec 06, 2012

The New York Times Research & Development Lab has built an app called Compendium that lets people create collections of NY Times articles and photos.

Compendium invites readers of The New York Times like you to use articles, imagery, videos, and quotations to tell your own stories using New York Times content. Each collection has a description that you can use to introduce the collection as a whole, and each item in your collection has a place for you to describe what was important, interesting, or funny about it. Once created, you can share your collection or link to it from anywhere. Compendium is also a great place to discover and explore interesting stories through a wide variety of collections created by our readers, editors, and reporters.

Some examples: Jenna Wortham's favorite reads of 2012, a drone-related collection, and the best/worst dining reviews.
