A nice story-as-graphic from USA Today:

The future of car safety is avoiding crashes

Yeah, I know, it doesn’t sound sexy. But it incorporates video and informative animations and text in a classy, clean layout, and it’s nice and big — but not TOO big. The three tabs at the top organize the story neatly.

The incredibly talented Laith Bahrani (he of considerable fame for the JCB Song, about which a complete cult has developed) is now featured on MediaStorm with his latest music video (hmm, a bit of a departure for MediaStorm, eh?) — Creep, by Radiohead! WOW!

Don’t click unless you are an animation fan.

Special treat for Flash Timeline animators: The Timeline is shown in the final frames of the video! (More than 1 million keyframes!)

Please excuse the interruption. We will return to our regular journalism-focused subject matter tomorrow.
