Topmost topics in the press

At the top of our newsroom today, a view from the top of America, offered by TIME: it's an avant garde multimedia website on the One World Trade Center (featuring a 360-degree interactive photograph from the top of the 1,776-foot-tall tower), paired with an extraordinary three-page gatefold cover photo in its printed issue. "My first cover of @TIME is a three-page gatefold from the top of #1wtc," senior editor Jonathan D. Woods divulged, sharing this amazing vine. You might say this is TIME's answer to NYT's Snowfall -- and it is an astounding one. Or as NationSwell's Erin Skarda put it: "Wow! I'm blown away by @TIME's 1 World Trade project. Congrats @jonwoods,@joshsanburn and the rest of the staff!" Seconded.

Getty Images also made waves in news circles today, blowing the web's mind by setting 35 million photos free -- with some conditions. That's a get by Nieman Lab's Joshua Benton, by the way, who acknowledged, "For some reason, I felt like writing 2,100 words about this fascinating Getty move." Buzzfeed's Jina Moore summarized it, "Great analysis of the Getty freeforall, including how dropping a paywall might make money." The British Journal of Photography also had that story, albeit in fewer words.
