Newsmap: awesome interface for news

Funny where you find the next "digital thing". I was at work today speaking to one of my good friends, Paul. Paul had this completely wild thing on his PC; while it looks like a bad tablecloth design, but upon closer inspection you can actually see that it's the news!



Newsmap is an incredible interface to display news. Based on the size, color and shade of the "newscube", it tells you how popular, how timely and what type of news it is. Paul has a nice write up on it with big words like "visualization" and "algorithm" on his blog, so click the post title to see more. In the meantime, I'm going to read some medium sized, light green news! ;>)
