Some outstanding work

I’ve been a bit bored with the internet. Too many of the same stories told in similar ways. So many look-a-like projects. Is everyone copying each other? I want the stories presented in original and better ways. Then I saw the following projects and the internet was exciting again.

Home and Away: Iraq and Afghanistan War Casualties
For  Memorial Day CNN puts faces and home towns to the U.S. and Coalition casualties from Iraq and Afghanistan. Amazing database visualization. More at: behind the scenes

The Uniform Project

Every day she reinvented the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments which are vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies.
