Imitation, flattery, and The Big Picture

The New York Times has a new, full-screen photo blog called "Lens"--and it might not exist without's "The Big Picture." From a write-up in Photo District News:

Lens draws some inspiration from The Big Picture a photo blog published by, which is also owned by The New York Times Company. The Big Picture pioneered a wide-screen layout that took advantage of improving resolutions of computer screens. It proved popular with audiences and has been widely imitated.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Times Co. should do this sort of thing more often.
