More Thanksgiving Recipe Trouble for the New York Times

The New York Times interactive feature “The United States of Thanksgiving” is getting plenty of interaction. Just not exactly the kind of interaction the paper bargained for.

As gleefully noted this morning by Romenesko, Minnesotans very quickly took offense to the idea of grape salad being in any way representative of their state.

NYT Social Media Wunderkind Moves To Marketing New App

After two years at Sulzberger’s institution, she will be joining drop.io — a file-sharing service that consolidates emails, phone conversations, and other various media — to take on the role of Product Lead for its new vertically integrated application, PressLift.

Prior to the Times, Darabi served for the Exec.

Appropriately enough, Darabi announced her departure yesterday morning via Twitter and Facebook, saying, “Next Tuesday will be my last full-day at The New York Times…It must go without saying that I will miss the beautiful brainy faces of my work family so very much.”
