Visual news

newsmapRecently I've rediscovered newsmap, an innovative interface for Google news that represents headlines by

  1. giving more size to stories reported in more papers (those culled by Google news), and
  2. making the background color lighter for newer stories, darker for older stories.

If you hover your mouse cursor over a story, it gives you a short synopsis.
