NiF Banner
Golan Levin
March 1999

I designed this banner for the News in the Future Consortium (NiF), an organization of industrial sponsors which helps fund our research at the MIT Media Laboratory. The theme of this year's consortium meeting was "Information Organized", a name which reflects the consortium's focus on information manipulation, and which is reflected in the progressive organization of this banner's news headlines.

The news headlines in this banner were designed to be updated several times daily by Dan Gruhl's ZWrap, a CGI software achitecture which attempts to unite content providers, content channels, and content consumers with massively customized online news. Gruhl's server has been repurposed for other projects so unfortunately news updates are no longer available through the applet.
