10x10 - A Marriage of Art & Technology

Here's a very cool website I read about in the Baltimore Sun. Called 10x10, it manages to capture a single moment in world history, over and over and over again.

How it works: every hour, the site scans news feeds and does a weighted linguistic analysis of the text in the top stories, enabling it to judge the hour's most important words. Each word is then associated with a photo image, all hundred of which form a collage on the web site. If you drag your mouse over the image, the corresponding word is enlarged.

Well, you just have to see it. You need the Flash 6 plug-in to view it. If you don't have it, click here to get the free download from Macromedia.
