Catching up on the best multimedia of the year

I love “best of” lists, although some make me feel like I’ve missed too much good work.  The Innovative Interactivity Top 50 multimedia packages of 2011 is one of those. I’ll be spending Christmas break trying to catch up on all the cool things out there I haven’t seen. Fortunately, they’re not all new, or I’d never get through them! A couple of my own favorites of the year that made the list: Battles and casualties of the Civil War, from the Washington Post, and the Arab Spring timeline from the Guardian. Two others I really like that are not on Tracy’s list: Which Generation Do You Belong To? from USA Today (just for sheer fun), and the Wall Street Journal’s comprehensive package on digital privacy, What They Know.
