How did people feel "back in the day?" Were they more positive or less so?
The SGI UV Shared Memory System charted how these sentiments unfolded through space and time using data from Wikipedia. Each location was plotted against the date referenced and then cross-referenced when mentioned with other locations.

Red is negative while green shows positive sentiments.
