OK…here are a couple of diversions. At the top of the right margin here at the blog, check out a couple of links. The first, Entertainment Newsmap, is what I might call a “weighted graphic display” of entertainment industry headlines from Google News. (Here’s the complete description). Kinda fun, and if you go to the site where Entertainment Newsmap originates, you will find other nifty little geek tricks. My teenagers thought the artsy little time-waster, MediumGrid 09, was pretty cool.
The other geek link here, TMD Graph, is a visual representation of some of the technical infrastructure for The Movieland Directory. It’s a clever, artistic and attractive method to communicate a subject which can be pretty…technical.
