We were very excited earlier this year when RWW made its way onto the latest edition of the Web Trend Map. For those of you unfamiliar with this map, it “plots the Internet’s leading names and domains onto the Tokyo Metro map. Domains and personalities are carefully selected through dialogue with map enthusiasts, and every domain is evaluated based on traffic, revenue, and character”. Information architecture company iA built this awesome visualization and we have learned that it is about to roll out an interactive version of its map later this month. Thanks to a tip from RWW reader @CleverClogs, we discovered that Tokyo based iA, who has been working on an interactive version of its Web Trend Map 4 since early June, will launch on July 14th. According to iA, “the idea is simple: Track the online tends in real time, deliver them in personalized and localized isometric maps. The technology is kind of a complicated story; but of course, we’ll give our best to make the interface as simple as the idea”. No further details were given at press time, but we did find another clue on the company’s Flickr photostream; “July 14th is the launch day of the interactive Webtrendmap. I hope we can launch the new iA site at the same time…our website might look somewhat like this (WTM spoiler alert)”:last_img read more

In all, he owns five titles at Indian Wells.

Andreescu reached the semifinals in Mexico last week.“If someone would have told me I would have gone to the third round of this tournament at the beginning of the year, I would have said, ‘You’re crazy,’” Andreescu said. “This is one of the best tournaments in the world, so I’m just really, really happy.”Other seeded men’s winners were: No. 6 Kei Nishikori, No. 8 John Isner, No. 10 Marin Cilic, No. 12 Karen Khachanov, No. 14 Daniil Medvedev, No. 22 Kyle Edmund, No. 25 Diego Schwartzman and No. 32 Guido Pella. 1 dead, 3 injured in Quezon road crash Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next No. 16 Fabio Fognini and No. 20 David Goffin were beaten.On the women’s side, No. 7 Kiki Bertens and No. 18 Qiang Wang advanced.
