The International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge 2010
- "Researchers are generating mind-boggling volumes of data at exponentially increasing rates. The ability to process that information and display it in ways that enhance understanding is an increasingly important aspect of the way scientists communicate with each other and—especially—with students and the general public. That's why, for the past 8 years, Science and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) have co-sponsored annual challenges to promote cutting-edge efforts to visualize scientific data, principles, and ideas. This year's awardees
span scales from nanoparticles to colliding galaxies, and from microseconds to millennia."

The AIDS Memorial Quilt
has an official website. Its quilt image database
is browsable and searchable by name, and includes images of over 42,960 individual panels, each in honor of a lost loved one.
It's an utterly amazing testament to those claimed by the disease, and to those who have survived them.
