There are all sorts of news trends websites out there, but none that I know of that really takes those trends and plots them on an interactive map to show correlation.
News Dots will display various trending topics in the news. You’ll notice larger clusters around the hottest topics.
The fun part about this is how various stories related to each other if you dig into each cluster. For example, I noticed two terms that were connected; Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harvey Milk. As it turns out, The Terminator has created a day honoring the late Harvey Milk in California.
If you want to find out how Micheal Jackson, “this is it” and Paul Anka are connnected, you’ll just have to visit the site for yourself.
