NYT: This was 1984

Jer Thorp has created a set of visualizations using the new Article Search API from NewYork Times and Processing.

This series of images uses the faceted searching abilities of the NYTimes Article Search API to construct maps of the top organizations & people mentioned in articles for a given news year. Connections between these entities are drawn, so that relationships can be found and followed.

UPDATE: Jer provides source code and tutorials about how to access the NY Times data on his blog – excellent read for people that want the their hands dirty with the API as well.
