How the New York Times’ Netflix toy was made

So many people posted about how fascinated they were by the New York Times’ feature A Peek Into Netflix Queues that I didn’t even bother to blog about it at the time. It shows the popularity of movies on a map by zip code. It’s a great toy that will eat an hour of your time before you know it.

The Society for News Design published a piece last week explaining how the Netflix toy was built as well as a copy of the static version that was included in the paper, which I didn’t even know existed. It’s a fascinating case study, as interesting to me as the visualization itself.
