A Day in the Life of NYTimes.com

Storytelling through visuals can be beautiful as well as effective. The image above is from a New York Times article about its own website traffic and illustrates where their readers are across the country, when they use the site and interestingly shows the flow of a breaking news story as it sweeps across the country. On the day this beautiful visualization was created the news broke of the death of Michael Jackson and the resulting swell of traffic across the nation illustrates how technology has enabled us to collectively experience things in our own unique ways.

We no longer need to be collectively glued to our televisions but can connect at home, at work and on the move with our smart devices.
