New York Times Lens Blog Launches Global Social Experiment

The New York Times’ Lens blog is attempting a project similar to the worldwide 4am project we covered recently.

A Moment in Time is an attempt to capture a slice in the history of the world by allowing readers to submit photographs taken at Sunday, May 2, at 15:00 hours (U.T.C.).

While the photographs don’t have to be taken exactly at the specified time, they ask that you try to stay within minutes of the target. Once you’ve taken a photo, submit it through submit.nytimes.com/moment.

The submitted photographs will then appear on both the Lens blog and on NYTimes.com, and notable photographs will selected and featured more prominently on the blog.

If you’re interested in participating, mark your calendar and be ready with your camera on May 2!

Hilarious New York Times Photo Error

The New York Times made a blunder on its website yesterday, when it displayed the wrong photograph for one of the headlines. The headline of the story was “Clinton Arrives in Chile With Pledge of Aid”, and the caption read “Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chilean President Michelle Bachelet”, but the photograph was obviously not showing the two politicians.

Here’s a full screenshot of the front page:

It’s amazing how something so strange could slip by the editors.

“My, Hillary! You’ve changed since I last saw you!”
