100 Words and Pictures that Define the Time
Die Einordnung im Etymologie-Portal sehe ich gerechtfertigt, weil die 100 aktuellen Wörter der Stunde / des Tages durchaus auch Neologismen beinhalten können, die entweder als Eintagsfliegen das Licht der Welt geniessen oder aber die Potenz haben in den allgemeinen Sprachschatz aufgenommen zu werden.
10x10™ ('ten by ten') is an interactive exploration of the words and pictures that define the time. The result is an often moving, sometimes shocking, occasionally frivolous, but always fitting snapshot of our world.
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. Over the course of days, months, and years, 10x10 leaves a trail of these hourly statements which, stitched together side by side, form a continuous patchwork tapestry of human life.
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.
Each hour is presented as a picture postcard window, composed of 100 different frames, each of which holds the image of a single moment in time. Clicking on a single frame allows us to peer a bit deeper into the story that lies behind the image. In this way, we can dart in and out of the news, understanding both the individual stories and the ways in which they relate to each other.
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.
With no human editors and no regulation, 10x10 is open and free, raw and fresh, and consequently a unique way of following world events. In 10x10, we respond instinctively to patterns in the grid, visual indicators of relevance. When we see a frequently repeated image, we know it’s important. When we see a picture of a movie star next to a picture of dead bodies, we understand the extremes that exist in our world. Scanning a grid of pictures can be more intuitive than reading headlines, for it lets the news come to life, and everything feels a bit less distant, a bit closer to heart, and maybe, if we're lucky, gives us pause to think.

10x10 was designed and developed by Jonathan Harris of Number27, in conjunction with the FABRICA communication research center in Italy.
Every hour, 10x10 scans the RSS feeds of several leading international news sources, and performs an elaborate process of weighted linguistic analysis on the text contained in their top news stories. After this process, conclusions are automatically drawn about the hour's most important words. The top 100 words are chosen, along with 100 corresponding images, culled from the source news stories. At the end of each day, month, and year, 10x10 looks back through its archives to conclude the top 100 words for the given time period. In this way, a constantly evolving record of our world is formed, based on prominent world events, without any human input.
Currently, 10x10 gathers its data from the following news sources:
- Reuters World News
- BBC World Edition
- New York Times International News
All photographs within 10x10 come from the aforementioned news sources, and full copyright ownership is maintained by those sources. 10x10 uses the images purely for artistic and educational purposes, and does not profit in any way from their use.
To find out the top 100 words for the hour, in ranked order, consult the "words.txt" file in the hour's folder. "words.txt" files have 100 lines, with one word on each line. The #1 (most important) word is on line 1, and the #100 word is on line 100. The lines end with the newline character ("\n"), with no spaces or punctuation.
Die Wortlisten können übrigens ab dem 04.11.2004 03:00h auch nachträglich eingesehn werden.
