New York Talk Exchange


NYTE (New York Talk Exchange) is part of MIT's Senseable City Lab projects that look at how we describe and understand cities as technologies change.  NYTE is a series of real time visualizations showing internet and telephone traffic flowing into and out of New York City.  I particularly liked the World Inside New York visual showing what parts of the world New Yorkers were calling. It gives some interesting insight into the inhabitants of different neighbourhoods.  The communications patterns draw attention to the relationship New York has with the rest of the world. It would be interesting to see these stats tracked over time.
