Visualize what the media are saying with Media Cloud

Media Cloud is a system that lets you see the flow of the media. The Internet is fundamentally altering the way that news is produced and distributed, but there are few comprehensive approaches to understanding the nature of these changes. Media Cloud automatically builds an archive of news stories and blog posts from the web, applies language processing, and gives you ways to analyze and visualize the data. The system is still in early development, but we invite you to explore our current data and suggest research ideas. This is an open-source project, and we will be releasing all of the code soon.

Media Cloud is a project of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard. Read more about the project or give it a spin here.

Treehouse Media Project

Treehouse Media Project presents an idea for an ‘anti-curmudgeon’ solution for the industry: ‘Laid off? Bought out? Pissed off? Or just overworked because you’re one of the “lucky” ones still working for the walking corpse that is the daily newspaper? Join us, the diaspora, as we work to recapture the joy and passion of our noble profession.’ Via Jay Rosen’s PressThink.
