Frozen Iguana Videos are the Future of The Miami Herald's Website
You may or may not care about the future of the struggling newspaper industry and how they (or, well, we) hope to put a greater emphasis on online multimedia features, but perhaps you would like to know that "The number one video on MiamiHerald.com last year got about 26,000 views and was a feature on how to handle frozen iguanas." That's from a Poynter article celebrating the, uh, relative "success" of the Herald's recent push in online video. Should 26,000 people watching a video on touching frozen lizards actually be considered a success? Yeah, sadly, probably.
