The site launched with ten beta projects, including:
+ Community Hub: This dashboard better visualizes user-generated content. It features commenting stats and a comment feed and is soon to include a user’s Facebook friends’ comments and a graphical representation of commenting history.
+ TimesInstant: This mashup enables instant search results. The app uses “NYTimes Article Search API, auto-complete functionality and a few other tricks,” as described on the project page.
+ Times Skimmer: This is an HTML5 app that offers users the “experience of spreading out a newspaper and paging through it.” It even uses the same fonts as the printed paper — a first for Times developers.
