Many Eyes on The Times U.S. Open Blog

Posted to Apps  |  Nathan Yau

There was a post on The Times U.S. Open blog debating on the state of American tennis compared to the rest of the world. Right in the middle of the post, what do we see? It’s a Many Eyes thumbnail!

There was some discussion on the the decreasing trend shown in the graph, but as the graph only shows American tennis data, the obvious next step would be to show what the rest of the tennis population (i.e. Europe, etc) would look like.

In any case, it’s nice to see Many Eyes creeping into popular media.
