Animating the global web

David Troy has built 2 very interesting much-talked-about websites twittervision and flickrvision. Latest updates on the popular micro blogging site Twitter are plotted on a auto-refreshing Google Map on twittervision. Flickrvision does the same thing for photos uploaded on the popular photo sharing site Flickr.  If you need to while away time, these 2 sites are great. Just watching the updates pour in from around the world is quite fascinating – an internet equivalent of looking out of your window and observing the passers-by. Check it out.

    Websites look cool, Sukumar and I just looked up Micro Blogging. Sounds like a bloggers equivalent of an SMS

    Thanks Archana. Nice analogy. You can in fact update your twitter account by sending an SMS from your cellphone. -Sukumar
