From the “Interesting Visualization of Information” category:

Buzztracker creates world maps of showing the major locations for the day’s news.

The relative size of the circles on the map indicate the number of news stories about each place (bigger cirlce, more stories). Clicking on the circle for the site, brings up a listing of the news stories about that site – something like a faceted search.

Pretty cool stuff.
