New York Times improves its recommendations engine

I’ve always been suspicious of that argument. (That “common conversation” was always a bit of a charade, and old newspaper monopolies can’t be simply willed back into existence by trying to guilt-trip readers who’ve found options they prefer.) But whatever your feelings about it, the reality is that very few news organizations have invested in technology that would allow for substantially different presentation of the news from person to person. If my neighbor goes to, he’ll see the same webpage I do; if my mother goes to, it’ll be the same page I see. (Some sites do minor shifts based on geography — local audiences vs. national audiences, for instance — but that’s still a long way from true personalization.)

Exploring Stories With Deep Dive

One of our central problems here at is surfacing content. With hundreds of articles, blog posts, media features and apps published every day it is simply impossible for readers to see them all. This is a good problem to have, but a problem none the less. So how do we help readers find everything they would want to read given that they only have the time to scan a small fraction of what we have to offer?

We do so in many ways: Our homepage/section front/subsection breakdown of the site itself goes a long way in allowing our editorial voice to guide visitors to a combination of what is important and what they want to read. What is Deep Dive? The first iteration of Deep Dive is basically a glorified “show me more like this” engine customized for the news reading experience. Looking Ahead Beyond a root article, users can create any combination of topics and search terms they would like to customize a personally compelling dive.

Thanks, David, Brandon and Priya.
