In their own words, “10×10â„¢ (‘ten by ten’) is an interactive exploration of the words and pictures that define the time.” What does that mean? Well, it is an array of thumbnail sized photos, 10 across and 10 down (hence the name), that are derived from the top 100 keywords in the news. The site automatically scans several news sources once an hour, selects the 100 most important words and a photo associated with each one, and then renders it as an image.

There is also a flash application that lets you see the word associated with each photo (or vice-versa) as well as navigate through past hours, or even days to see what the images were since it started running earlier this month.
