CHECK OUT THE NEW MUSEUM’S $1 MILLION SITE: Jed Lipinsky reports: “Four years in the making, the site features four new programs designed to serve its rapidly growing digital audience, estimated to be in the millions annually. These include a digital archive documenting the museum’s 35-year history; a database of 400 independent art spaces in 96 nations; and a regularly updated blog with reviews and interviews.”

Image Atlas indexes the top image results from different search engines around the world, enabling viewers to visualize cultural differences. I typed “New York” and got images from all around the world.
