Tyler Friedman at Media Salon on I Wanted to See All of the News From Today:
I saw a panel discussion with the guy who did this project before. It is pretty ambitious. […] It is a constantly refreshing overview of the state of the global consciousness. It is not every newspaper yet, but, as I understand, that is the goal. Of course, this project is dependent upon physical print- upon the concept of a newspaper front page. It would not be as effective to make a similar conglomeration of the daily headlines using, say, internet home pages, as most news sites are not as regionalized as a printed paper is. So, this project acts upon physical reality, compiling it in a way that would be physically impossible without digitalization and the globalized communal work ethics enabled by networking.One other thing that is nice about this, is that it doesnâ€™t attempt to say anything. There is not editorial voice, or artistic presence providing access to the information for you. No translations, no links. The site is completely 2-dimensional. The information is left to speak for itself, to be interpreted as it is. As such it is a pretty radical visualization of the international current moment.If only the images were higher resolution and a pdf style zoom in zoom out function was supported so that the smaller text would be visible.
