New York Times Kick

I never realized...how cool the NYT is.

They have been running a series of stories called "One in Eight Million". Every week, they have found a "character" in New York City. They interview him or her, take pictures, and then post a streaming video online all about that person's life.

It's really inspiring, and very reminiscent of This American Life (which streams!) Seeing things like this...I long to live in a bigger city.

Some of my favorites:
+ Baby Deliverer
+ Bus-Depot Barber
+ Mozzarella Maker
+ Subway Busker (performer)
+ Urban Taxidermist
