The Banality of Islamic State from Bloomberg

New from Cam Simpson in Bloomberg, a fascinating piece about IS, with a dynamic twist; if you click on some parts of the text, a sidebar will pop in to provide additional background information. Persons, places, timeline of events and a glossary, are all available to the reader, and seamlessly augment the main piece as the reader scrolls through the article.

It reminds us of the News Dispenser project presented at NewsHACK II by then Westminster University students Michael Ertl and Massimo Paradiso.
