Timescast: Post 2

Further to my Timescast post and relating to my links post I just thought I would point out a couple of the things I think work well on the timescast

The Roanoke Times daily webcast, The TimesCast

I like the screen layout – The mix of video on the left and dynamic content on the right works well. I know a lot of sites use this layout but it tends to be reserved for menu stuff rather than directly related content.

I think this multiple presentation is a one of those things that more and more people should do.

The fact that what’s there links to content in the paper and to other interactive elements is great and I like the nod to the mechanics of the medium as the presenter points you to the button on the screen.

Flagging up content from the message boards is also a neat feature and the use of onscreen graphics is a nice ‘lend’ from broadcast that works well.
