The Boston Globe relaunched their website today - they are the first major website (that I'm aware of) to use responsive web design techniques. I'm pretty impressed and thought the list should check it out.
I'm not sure what you mean by "responsive web design techniques." Can you say more?
Just to be clear, this is not a "relaunch." The Globe (a print
newspaper) is launching a new paywall site, bostonglobe.com, to
complement their free site boston.com.
Here is a link to a story on the launch, from a Boston-based NPR news

Resize your browser and watch how the content reflows and changes to fit the viewport. That's responsive design in a nutshell. It's one of the newest methods for creating sites that work well across various devices and browsers.
It strikes me that there's no really obvious verbal clue as to what's clickable--and yet I just knew. Interesting comment on how we learn to "read" something like this. The NY Times goes most of the way, but the clickable links are dark blue and underline on hover. Of course, the Times is the Globe's parent, so maybe the Times trained me to read the new Globe design, and maybe the Globe designers consulted with the Times designers.
