10 x 10 is a website that aims to create a unique view of our time by collecting 100 highly used words and their corresponding images every hour, day, month and year. The content is gathered from a few news sources and sorted automatically with no human intervention.
This is a pretty interesting idea. It creates an illustrative historical record that is more about observation than interpretation. This site won a Flash Forward award a couple of years ago for its technical merit. (Thanks Heckman).
