    I just discovered this site last night and must say it's pretty damn neat/inventive, and it updates pretty often since 90% that I see there wasn't there last night...then again it's Sunday.

    This is a concept that's been around for a while -- I had first seen it around 1999. The application behind it is supposed to figure out how popular or active each item is and then maps the page to give it a proportionate amount of space.

    This site is doing it for Google News but I have seen others that compare a bunch of websites in the same field.

    It's visually striking but after a while you think, well, what's the point?

          I'm a creature of necessity. A lot of times the end client will want an actual signed release and a real photo credit, so you have to attempt to find the artist.
          Love doing image research for projects....

          All I can suggest is consult a tax expert in the UK. If your company doesn't mind you moonlighting like this, maybe they could suggest someone for you.

          I do business with people in the UK a lot. Because the gig they hire us for is going to be in the US, they time shift their design staff so they are available during US Eastern Time. It's the only way...
