10 x 10 / 100 Words and Pictures That Define the Time

You must check out 10 x 10. I am serious; this thing is so very cool: What is it? I don't even want to try to explain it; so here are a few snippets from their about page:
10x10™ ('ten by ten') is an interactive exploration of the words and pictures that define the time. ... Every hour, 10x10 collects the 100 words and pictures that matter most on a global scale, and presents them as a single image, taken to encapsulate that moment in time ... ...10x10 is ever-changing, ever-growing, quietly observing the ways in which we live. It records our wars and crises, our triumphs and tragedies, our mistakes and milestones. When we make history, or at least the headlines, 10x10 takes note and remembers... ...10x10 runs with no human intervention, autonomously observing what a handful of leading international news sources are saying and showing. 10x10 makes no comment on news media bias, or lack thereof. It has no politics, nor any secret agenda; it simply shows what it finds.
