WorldTrends Beta 4
Published by KermMartian on December 22, 2006 at 5:49:07 PM CST | Discuss this article (3)

I have after about two and a half weeks of work finished enough of WorldTrends that I see fit to give it the version label of Beta 4. This unique tool collects data on the current state of the world from various sources, including Google News, Digg, Slashdot, and the three major financial indices. It also crawls for headlines and generates keyword data to reveal the most pressing issues and ideas affecting the world at any one time. WorldTrends displays this data in an easy-to-read chart view, with a variety of settings to adjust the data and timeframe currently in display. Another feature is the TrendSig, which will soon be expanded in a more dynamic layout to include all seven of the available news sources (6 unique and 1 composite). For now, check it out, give me feedback and suggestions, and help me get it into diggable shape for the first nonbeta release!
