News RDI: Visualizing New York Times International Coverage

News RDI

In this demo, we visualised the last 20 years of New York Times national and international coverage, with data from the Linguistic Data Consortium.

After writing a Processing demo to display the data, we embedded the display into a news box donated by The Berkshire Eagle, which Ethan drove all the way from Western Mass. We wrote software for the Arduino to let viewers control the visualization using a dial on the front of the box

The photo on the right shows Matt Stempeck and I demo-ing it at our very first Media Lab Member Liaison meeting, in 2011.
