Visualizing crowdsourcing: Trendsmap

We all know nytimes.com is an innovative newsroom. A good example of that is this Twitter map of the Superbowl.

The location of the tweets during the match showed very interesting. And now, these kind of solutions with Twitter can be found on Trendmaps, a trendtopics visualizator for this microblogging service.

This is an example on the visual power of the crowdsourcing data. Visualization has become a powerful way to understand trends and what's happening on thsi interconnected world. So you know what you have to do: tell your children to become infographic experts: there's a future for them! :)
