On December 2, we're launching a BIG interactive documentary project where we follow an "ordinary" t-shirt from seed to cotton to fabric to shirt.

Love this podcast. Really great example of innovation in journalism.

"Beginning in 1996, Radio Diaries gave tape recorders to teenagers around the country to create audio diaries about their lives. NPR’s All Things Considered aired intimate portraits of five of these teens: Amanda, Juan, Frankie, Josh and Melissa. They're now in their 30s. Over this past year, the same group has been recording new stories about where life has led them for our series, Teenage Diaries Revisited."

Part of NPR's Inauguration coverage: President Obama will soon be sworn into office, and whether you voted for him or not, he's everybody's president. What do you want him to remember in his second term?

New project at work! NPR's Swing State Scorecard is fully responsive (try it on your smartphone or tablet), uses ProPublica's StateFace for the state icons, and looks just a little like Tetris...

NPR Music/News Apps collaboration: A play-along map of Meriden, NH, where Okkervil River grew up. Hear a song from their new album and explore the landscape of childhood inspiration. Illustration by frequent Okkervil collaborator William Schaff.
Time travel to 1986 and tour Meriden, N.H., hometown of Okkervil River's Will Sheff. And hear the band's new single!

NPR's Adam Cole re-watched the first three seasons of "Arrested Development" and meticulously logged the recurring jokes. The NPR News Apps team worked with him to build this crazy episode guide. And then Jeremy Bowers binge-watched Season 4 and logged all those jokes, to bring the guide up-to-date.
NPR's slightly obsessive guide to the running gags on Arrested Development, updated for season 4.

Also, check out Becky Lettenberger and Justine Kenin's great video and radio piece for NPR's All Things Considered that inspired our Tumblr project.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor shared her photo albums with NPR as part of a big interview with Nina Totenberg related to the justice's new autobiography. Claire O'Neill pulled everything together into a coherent narrative, and colleagues Christopher Groskopf, Brian Boyer and I set up an interactive to display them (adapted from last month's NPR Music "In Memoriam" interactive).

Live updates, results and a little bit of a game... Also: Watch results come in via the same "big boards" we have up in NPR's Studio 4A!

NPR will have live coverage from the RNC tonight, tomorrow and Thursday starting at 8pm each night. Worked with Nelson Hsu, Erica Ryan and Brian Boyer to put together a focused live listening / reading experience. (And it's responsive, too! Desktop, tablet, smartphone, etc.)
