The Times as History
[vimeo][/vimeo]This is artist and programmer Tim Schwartz showing some of the art he's made by searching terms from The New York Times. He's found several fascinating ways to look at what people were talking about via the paper of record, for the last 150 years. My personal favorite is the graph tracking when they stopped using "theatre" and started using "theater," but the map that shows what countries were mentioned is also great. People occasionally make these charts using Google results or key words from blogs. But this goes back 150 years and is fascinating. Read all about it and other similar pieces here.Thanks, Atley.
