Link of the Day Click for more info

Marumushi Newsmap is a visualisation of the Google News aggregator. That's probably not the best way to introduce a link, but what it does is show various headlines based on their popularity, classification and region. Actually the best way to understand what it does is to click on the link and check it out yourself.

For example, contrast the US news landscape against that of the UK (or any other country, in fact). Sports and Entertainment take the bulk of the coverage across the pond, while World seems to dominate everywhere else. There are other trends worth checking out too, but I'll leave that to you.

Make sure you check out Marumushi's other applications too. Oh, and thanks to Joyanta for the link.
