Lyndon of Scraps of Moscow provides a comprehensive review of the New York Times‘ Russian-language LJ community [1], a platform for a “translator-assisted online dialog” between Russian bloggers and the newspaper's regular readers and its Moscow bureau staff: “a very interesting and creative step, with the potential to realize the full interactive power of the internet.” James of Robert Amsterdam's blog also posts a note [2] on the initiative.
