The Penrose Annual was a hefty hard-cover bound annual that covered the latest and greatest print technology from 1895 to 1982. If you can get one on eBay, do so. Many issues are packed with dozens of color plates, special inks, embossings and other ephemera that exhibit the brilliant craft of the pressman. The 1938 edition by Jan Tschichold is particularly desirable…

“Most readers will be aware of so-called “3D printing” techniques, in which solid objects can be constructed automatically from computer models. Researchers in California intend to scale the process up radically, using “contour crafting” concrete extrusion to erect buildings in a matter of hours.”

newsmap is one amazing news aggregator.

“Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator. A treemap visualization algorithm helps display the enormous amount of information gathered by the aggregator. Treemaps are traditionally space-constrained visualizations of information. Newsmap’s objective takes that goal a step further and provides a tool to divide information into quickly recognizable bands which, when presented together, reveal underlying patterns in news reporting across cultures and within news segments in constant change around the globe.

Newsmap does not pretend to replace the googlenews aggregator. Its objective is to simply demonstrate visually the relationships between data and the unseen patterns in news media. It is not thought to display an unbiased view of the news; on the contrary, it is thought to ironically accentuate the bias of it.”
