Viva, Las Vegas

The online eyes in our newsroom today were ogling the Las Vegas Sun’s new multimedia site.

Judging by discussion groups and bloggers, there was similar envy in newsrooms across the country.

Look at the front page. There’s a variety of videos that both jump right off the page and can fill the screen.

This is a great example of what newspapers can do. We will refrain from using the ton of gambling metaphors rushing through our brains.  But this is one case where we hope what’s happening in Las Vegas doesn’t stay there.
