I am cross-posting this from my microblog (on Tumblr), Tumbld Thoughts. It's a YouTube video documenting the progression of a research paper. This paper was submitted  to the Computer Science conference "WWW" (or World Wide Web). 463 changes to the document were made as it was being fleshed out, all of which are included in the 1 minute and 32 second time-lapse video. Enjoy. NOTES:  shown here is a short animation of the process. I tend to be a bit more nonlinear when writing research papers, so this is pretty impressive.  Courtesy of Timothy Weninger, UIUC.
