After many many many long months of sitting locked in my room (or in a cafe down the road), programming and tweaking, buzztracker is finally up! Buzztracker tracks news events by collecting references to locations across thousands of news articles. It also collects contextual connections between those locations. The result is buzztracker.org. A site that allows you to interact with these patterns and explore the news in (hopefully) new and interesting ways. (warning: using buzztracker may be addictive)
And remember, KUHAKU is available at your better bookstores throughout the city.
