Pick of the day: Multimedia magic on FLYP

I stumbled across FLYP magazine in some web search or other a while back. It's a web-based magazine that allows a print-loving reader (like me) to "turn" the pages, replete with a squeegy page-turning sound, while you browse through the site.

FLYP does some fun things that combine old world print stories and gorgeous photography and design with new world graphics, videos and web pop-ups that let you skim through a tale, or explore it deeply, whichever suits your interests or time constraints. Today's pick is a story about the famous magicians' table at Cafe Edison in New York where magicians, clowns and acrobats have been lunching on matzoh ball soup every Friday since 1942. Click on a couple of the videos to watch the magicians talk, not only of being in a movie with Woody Allen, but of plying their mystifying trade with sponge balls and decks of cards. (I particularly liked the sponge ball trick. Corny. But cool.)
