Orlando Sentinel Grokking the Freelance Community?

In today's paper (yes, they still print news on to dead trees) there is an article about the not-yet-open Urban ReThink in Downtown Orlando's Thornton Park neighborhood. The article mainly focuses on the Coworking part of it - trust me, there is a lot more to it than Coworking. Still, coverage in the mainstream media is nice, and I have had several people messaging me because they saw my name in the paper. Cool stuff.

Below that I saw a photo of (twentysomething) kids sitting at laptops... It was an article about free wi-fi in Orlando. Did the Sentinel's recommendation engine get lucky, or was it some savvy web editor who knew that people reading about Cow-orking would also be looking for cool places to work and get wi-fi? I am betting on the latter.

When the Orlando Sentinel did that recent re-design of their print version, I was floored. Why did they do it? Who did it? Where did they find the inspiration? What do other readers think?

Bonita Burton, Orlando Sentinel's Associate Managing Editor for Visuals and the person who lead the team that carried out the project, was gracious enough to do an interview with me about all the above questions and more.
