Celebrating The Times Magazine's Most Iconic Images
When you work for a magazine that produces 52 issues a year, there is not a lot of time for reflecting on the past. But that's exactly what Kathy Ryan, the longtime photo editor of The New York Times Magazine, was asked to do for The New York Times Magazine Photographs, a revealing new book to be published by Aperture this October.

The Making of a New York Times Magazine Cover
What may seem like a long, arduous process was actually a short, arduous process. The execution of the final cover happened within a period of two very intense days.

Tale of the Tape: The New Newsweek vs. The New New York Times Magazine
Over the weekend, two of the nation's most prominent newsweeklies debuted new looks under new editors. How often does that happen? It's like your mother getting a short, modern haircut on exactly the same weekend your dad decides to finally shave off his mustache. It's jarring!

Subtraction.com: The Speed of Redesigning
In my experience, it took no less than six months to undertake a major overhaul of any part of NYTimes.com or to update its apps or other products. And it takes years, apparently, to build something as colossal as a pay wall.

Sneak peek: What’s new in the New York Times Magazine - Yahoo! News
Regardless of what other magazine editors are doing, Lindgren said the Times Magazine has an opportunity to get set itself apart each week. That's because a slew of top weekly magazines--such as New York, Newsweek, and The New Yorker--all hit the newsstand Monday morning. Others, like Time and The Economist, are out the Friday before. "We feel like Sunday belongs to us," he said.

Sally Singer Talks T - WWD.com
“For me, it’s what I want from The New York Times on a weekend,” said Singer, 45, her voice picking up. “I want a good, sexy, neurotic story about New York literary life in the Seventies. I want the New York Review of Book parties. I want a little Farrar, Strauss and Giroux. You have that literary dream of New York. It’s got it all.”

Inside the Media Hiring Bubble | The New York Observer
The media-jobs thaw that The Observer first noted in April has reached a stage that might best be described as like poaching fish in a barrel. Editors like Ms. Brown, Mr. Lindgren and Matt Winkler of Bloomberg News are getting the talent they want, when they want it, and with little foreplay.

CASE Editors Forum 2009: Gerry Marzorati on the future of long-form narrative
A typical cover story in the Times Magazine, when you add up what we pay the author and what the expenses for travel are - -and this leaves out the editing and fact-checking costs, the photography, and so on - - the tally is north of $40,000, and often, if a war zone is involved, considerably more.

The Way We Live Now - The Edge of the Mystery - Will Barack Obama's Aura Fade? - NYTimes.com
Obama represents something enigmatic in a political arena where everything before had come to seem trite and depressingly predictable; it’s the very newness of him, the lack of familiarity, that makes us wonder if perhaps he signals not only a political departure but also a transformed society. Just maybe, we think, a country that can elect a president as unlikely and untested as Obama is actually less intolerant and less socially stagnant than many Americans had long assumed. The unfolding years will reveal much more about the man we have elected, and perhaps even something of ourselves.
