One Year of the New York Times As Told By 12,000 Screenshots

Phillip Mendonça-Vieira made a mistake, a wonderful mistake. For over a year, he accidentally ran a cron task that captured a screenshot of the NY Times' front page twice an hour, 24 hours a day.


By the time he realized what he had done, the freelance Canadian developer had accumulated over 12,000 images. He compiled these images into a five-minute video essay that details the major events of the last year. Everything from the Chilean miner rescue to the Japanese Tsunami, it's in there.
