Mashington Post

I just stumbled upon this site – http://blogs.washingtonpost.com/post_remix/ and found it really interesting in how it disseminates and ranks the news from the Washington Post website by keywords and search strings. For instance, there is a “NewsCloud” that shows the most popular and least popular search strings – I found it odd that “war in Iraq” was smallest and “Goals” (whatever that means!) was biggest. There’s also a World News Map showing the least and most newsworthy places – North America had 3 stories; the Middle East had 87 followed by Asia with 26.

Just thought I’d pass it on as it’s quite a fascinating way of looking at what is perceived the most newsworthy to Post readers.

On a related note:

In case anyone hasn’t seen the newsmap, check it out here. It is relatively awesome.

Another interesting site to look at is Ten By Ten, its basically a computer that scans three major news (BBC World Edition, NY Times International, and Reuters World News) sites every hour and finds the 100 “most important” words and pictures at that time, then compiles a grid of images and list of words that correlate. Its interesting to look at the media landscape on a changing hourly basis.


then click “This is Now”
