DoodleBuzz

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Websites / Interface & Navigation / 2009

The web is full of top-down scrolling websites that are great for viewing information linearly, but not so good at fun things like chance and exploration. DoodleBuzz was born out of an idea to create an entirely new way of exploring information, allowing for a kind of 'quiet chaos' that gives everyone the opportunity to explore unthought-of paths and connections along their news gathering journey. The interface for DoodleBuzz is simply a scribbled line. Draw a straight line. Draw a curved line. Draw a crazy, chaotic, all-over-the-place messed up line. It's up to you how you want to lay out the information. DoodleBuzz simply provides a blank canvas for you to use and abuse. You may start at Iraq but end up finishing on Britney, while taking in the Catholic Church, global warming and 50 Cent.
