Newspaper Map

Various authors, Website, Jun 02, 2011

This is a remarkable resource shared over Diigo last night. Basically it's a map of the world with a smallish dot for each newspaper - there are hundreds, maybe thousands - of dots from everywhere. Click on a dot and you get the newspaper for that city. But even better, a box pops up, allowing you to click on your language and get an instant translation of the newspaper. Now not everything works perfectly; I was utterly unable to read the newspaper from Moscow, and I'm told that Mongolian can't be translated. No matter; browsing through Al-Shaab (Cairo) I marvelled at how small our world has become (sadly, the St. Helena Herald, which I read in detail last night, has today pulled its paper from public view).
