The New York Times is increasing its online presence, according to a syndicated story in BrisbaneTimes.com.au.

Agence France Presse reports that the broadsheet has launched "five new online projects within a week". An interview with Vivian Schiller, senior vice president and general manager of NYTimes.com, follows.

What those new projects are, is not explained. After visiting their Web site, I cannot claim to see what changes have been made. If new sites were established, I'm no wiser.

Schiller does inform us, however, that the paper has decided to integrate its newsrooms. This will mean that their "integrated newsroom is now 1,250 people-strong" since the 1,200 newspaper journalists were joined by the 50 or so "producers and journalists" looking after their Web site.

The NYT now has 35 blogs, and Schiller says that "a lot of our reporters have really enjoyed blogging as a complement to filing stories".
