New York Times "App-Ed"

Today I was taking in the New York Times op-ed Mapping Mideast Peace. Noteworthy here is the transformation of the op-ed piece — a common pre-digital-age static form — into a dynamic digital application, albeit a relatively simple one. I'm calling this the "App-Ed." Has anyone else used that term before?
