Here’s another interesting data visualization idea.  Take the Google news feed and generate a heat map.   Click on an item in the heat map to read the news story.  The application, named Newsmap, sports a number of filters, color codes the items by category (Technology is green) and uses color to signify the age of the article (darker colors = older links).  Written in Flash.

Voting chooses a winner

It’s a simple idea really. Take screenshots of two candidates from a pool of submitted web sites.  Show them to a visitor to and ask then to vote for the better site.  Show two more to the voter and let them choose.  Do it over and over until the visitor finally tires and flees.

Repeat this procedure for thousands of visitors and eventually you amass a list of the best and worst design in the pool.

That the idea behind the  http://commandshift3.com site.  Currently they have 16,000 sites vying for the top design honor.
