What's Up? News Plotted All Over The Globe
I don't do many, "Hey this website is cool, check it out" posts. But hey, this website is kinda cool, you might want to check it out. I'm talking about What's Up, a new site created by Jeroen Wijering. What's Up is a Flash-based news map. New stories are highlighted on a world map, and a balloon appears with a headline; clicking on the balloon sends you to the source of the story. Older stories appear as orange or yellow dots on the map. Move your mouse over the dot and a headline appears. Clicking on the headline send you to the story.
