Visualize World News

A random link on a security site brought me here to a visualization of news found a News.google.com presented in order of its importance and age. It's a way to quickly see what Google's news system thinks is most important without scanning all the headlines.For years, I've talked about how great it would be on mailing lists and discussion forums to have a visual representation of what's hot and what's linked to avoid the very mechanical task of scanning and reading to organize the information in your head. I'd like to see more of this.
