Visually representing SMS messages being sent in Amsterdam on New Years Eve.

A few years ago I experienced Arcade Fire's interactive video The Wilderness Downtown (use Chrome to view) and it made me cry. It was so personal and beautiful. One of the people who worked on it, Aaron Koblin, presents an amazing TED Talk on how we can use data and unique interfaces to tell stories and bring some humanity back to the information. Get your note books out. This is a good one.

Don't you just love TED Talks? They are always so thought provoking and inspiring. Do you have any favorites?
