Clean, Crisp News Site
For efficiency alone I'd give The Harvard Crimson two thumbs up! Every news section is neatly arranged on the home page, so that navigation is not a hassle. And the three clear columns give it a crisp appearance. I liked that there was not an overwhelming amount of color, this way the images readily stand apart from the standard red text.
I, also, agree with the point Jessie made in her blog that Harvard's Crimson may not be over-the-top or spectacular in terms of multimedia design, but it is put together respectively well considering their physical newspaper is published daily.
On an altogether different note, in the opinion section, there is a cartoon that was cute, and probably rather funny if you were a Harvard student. If you're wondering what HUDS on lunch bag stands for, it simply means Harvard University Dining Services. Anyway, it added some college humor and underscored the Yale/Harvard rivalry.
