Information Overload

Three ways to rethink information:

10 x 10
10×10 scans the RSS feeds of Reuters World News, BBC World Edition and New York Times International News. At the end of each hour, the top 100 words are ranked. “In this way, a constantly evolving record of our world is formed, based on prominent world events, without any human input.”

Hive Group (Demo)
Look to hear more about the Hive Group in the future… “This Honeycomb map reflects the Top 100 songs in Apple Comuter, Inc.’s iTunes music service. The map updates every 24 hours by reading current information from Apple’s iTunes XML feed.”

News Map
“Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator. A treemap visualization algorithm helps display the enormous amount of information gathered by the aggregator. Treemaps are traditionally space-constrained visualizations of information.”
