10x10: 100 Words and 100 Pictures

10x10 looks both interesting and entertaining:

Every hour, 10x10 scans the RSS feeds of several leading international news sources, and performs an elaborate process of weighted linguistic analysis on the text contained in their top news stories. After this process, conclusions are automatically drawn about the hour's most important words. The top 100 words are chosen, along with 100 corresponding images, culled from the source news stories.
They also provide links to the related articles and it looks like they intend to archive the hourly reports starting with their beginning back on 11/4. The history funtionality will be cool variation on 'this day in history' stuff.

They do not say whether they intend to add more news sources to the three they are now using and the images currently load slowly.
