Cutlines Only: The Des Moines Register

June 19, 2008

A stranded pig rests on a barn after Iowa River floodwater broke a levee near Oakville, The Des Moines Register says today.

Cutlines Only: The Indianapolis Star

May 16, 2008

Updated at 4:11 p.m. PT: A reader says in a comment that the companywide rollout of the new video publishing platform I wrote about earlier, below, has been delayed. My question: Why?

Earlier: Eli Lilly and Co. workers paint a possibly record-breaking half-mile mural yesterday, The Indianapolis Star says today. The pharmaceutical giant is based in Indianapolis, where it’s a major employer. Photo by Danese Kenon, Star, via Newseum.

The Star also offers video of the event — part of Gannett’s rollout across the company of a new video publishing platform. With that change, bloggers and other online publishers can embed GCI video — as I’ve done, below. That’s a technology tool I’ve wanted the company to add to its arsenal. It extends the reach of both video and individual papers, boosting revenue potential from any “pre-roll” paid advertisements appearing with them.


Couple thoughts: Why doesn’t the Star‘s name appear anywhere? (Sheesh: Lilly sure worked its name in, over and over!) What about a byline? And: So annoying! How come the player starts the moment this page loads; why doesn’t it allow us to hit the “play” button first?
