A couple months back, there was a cool flash-based front-end
to Google News that displayed topics and their relative importance based on size. Now comes another visualization
that's a little bit more abstract, but can be used in the same way, to get "a picture" of what the world considered news on any given day (and it has archives). Slick stuff, rollover all the colored boxes to see topics and click to see archived data.
