At the end of each day, month and year, 10x10 looks back through its archives to conclude the top 100 words for the given time period. Essentially what this means is that there is a constantly evolving record of our world, based on prominent world events - without human input. Why has 10x10 received the impact and recognition that it has? It is simply this. We use it for reference. We use it to remind ourselves in one quick snapshot what is going on in this world. As you sit there happily drinking your coffee with the only worry in the world being that you forgot to let the dog out to relieve itself before you came to work this morning, 10x10 reminds us that there is a lot else going on. If you see a repeat in an image, you know there is a major world event occurring. If you see (as 10x10 puts it) a picture of a movie star next to pictures of dead bodies, we instantly understand the extremes that exist in our world at any given time.
