Global Attention Profile

A crafty geek (which is high praise in my book) at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society has come up with this application, which parses the AP Newswire for the number of times a country is mentioned. Then it is turned into a map where blue is “cold” and red is “hot.” (Via Scripting News.)

I can’t really tell for sure because the map is so small, but I think we’re the tiny pink dot under the larger red blob in the middle of Yurp.
