A wonderful example of nice flash programming and xml. Ten by Ten uses images to give us the big picture. An interesting visual exercise. Ten by Ten currently gathers news from media outlets such as Reuters World News, BBC World Edition and the New York Times International News. Every hour, 10×10 collects the 100 words and pictures that matter most on a global scale, and presents them as a single image.
10×10 was designed and developed by Jonathan Harris of Number27 , currently on a one-year fellowship at Fabrica, Benetton’s Communication Research Center in Treviso, Italy.
10×10 runs with no human intervention; images and words are gathered automatically from news sites. What’s also fascinating is the open-source nature of this project: the data produced by the project is available to developers with attribution.
Could make for some wonderful applications in the stock photography industry.
