"SEARCHSCAPES: MANHATTAN" is an attempt to create a tridimensional map of Manhattan, using existing data from the web. The objective is to compare the city's "physical spaces" and "information spaces"

What an interesting and cool concept. I wish I knew how it worked to add info, ie "Each person constructs his/her image of the city. This image is made out of facts, memories, experiences, stories, news - mostly invisible data, and not only of architecture, buildings and streets." Guess it's a work in progress. It'll be interesting to see how it evolves.

I'm sure this guy is way ahead of his time on this but...it's really not much to look at right now. Trying to balance the image to actually even be able to read anything is near impossible.

Thats pretty cool. These people come up with similar stuff on a regular basis. How long till I can browse my hard drive this way...?

Good idea.

42th St. and 72th St. need to go though.

gemini: You already can, but the question is: why?

cmicali: Why? Because it was Jurassic Park, dude.

Interesting, cmicali. A few seconds trying to work out this file index brings home dramatically the glories of alphabetical order.
