I collaborate on technology, research, and communities which empower people to become more creative, more effective, and more informed. I'm a PhD candidate at the MIT Media Lab Center for Civic Media and an affiliate at the Berkman-Klein Center at Harvard.
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
