To say that the digital revolution has utterly changed access to knowledge would be the understatement of the millennium. Thanks to online magazines, encyclopedias, and books, it is now possible to spend your entire waking life (such as it is) cramming for that appearance on Jeopardy. But the Internet has done more than revolutionize the ownership of knowledge by putting entire libraries’ worth of useless information at everyone’s fingertips: For scholars, it has made access to online resources such as JSTOR (Journal STORage), a repository of digitized articles from academic journals, absolutely indispensable.
Every day, users from around the world view articles in fifty fields of study on the JSTOR web site. As with many web sites, JSTOR collects this usage data for a variety of reasons. We take this usage data and build an animated map of that activity, daily.
