Wired Anniversary Visualization

Somehow I missed this when it ran back in the June 2008 issue of Wired. The cool research scientists over at IBM's Visual Communication Lab, Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg, created a custom algorithm to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Wired. The results are beautiful – a page in the issue, and a poster too. On their web page, they demonstrate the technique using 3 of my cover designs as examples. How cool!
