Congratulations to Zoe Fraade-Blanar

Zoe’s project, the Overlooked Newsreader, is a unique combination of commentary, code, and design that our panelists decided would be the perfect recipient of the 2009 Macktez Summer Stipend.

Read about all the finalists for this year’s Summer Stipend.

The project is a real-time database of news stories from the New York Times cross-referenced with international news sources, mapped to show Americans all the news they miss in the parts of the world they don’t see. Zoe says, “I picture people stopping by there each morning to check what articles their newspaper overlooked.”

And don’t forget to look out for fortune-telling fish this Halloween.
