The Happiest Cities in the World [Infographic]

The Happiest Cities in the World [Infographic] | bancoideas | Scoop.it

Happiness is a fleeting commodity in reality, it comes and goes, but the perception of happiness is the real bottom-line driver for cities and their branding.


What makes urban dwellers happy? According to a 10,000 respondent, 20 country research effort from GfK Custom Research, it is a location-based perception: does your city offer you places to go that make you happy? Apparently, the perception-reality gap is what is really interesting the city governments. Happiness is a fleeting commodity in reality, it comes and goes, but the perception of happiness is the real bottom-line driver for cities and their branding.

The winning locations end up being quite obvious candidates; entertainment and cultural heavyweights, beautiful urban areas and laid-back lifestyles lead the march...

100 Diagrams That Changed the World

100 Diagrams That Changed the World | bancoideas | Scoop.it

A visual history of human sensemaking, from cave paintings to the world wide web.


Since the dawn of recorded history, we’ve been using visual depictions to map the earth, order the heavens, make sense of time, dissect the human body, organize the natural world, perform music, and even decorate abstract concepts like consciousness and love.

100 Diagrams That Changed the World by investigative journalist and documentarian Scott Christianson chronicles the history of our evolving understanding of the world through humanity’s most groundbreaking sketches, illustrations, and drawings, ranging from cave paintings to The Rosetta Stone to Moses Harris’s color wheel to Tim Berners-Lee’s flowchart for a “mesh” information management system, the original blueprint for the world wide web.

But most noteworthy of all is the way in which these diagrams bespeak an essential part of culture — the awareness that everything builds on what came before, that creativity is combinational, and that the most radical innovations harness the cross-pollination of disciplines.

I see! - goes together with embodied cognition? It seems so... Infographics as a key?

Quando um gestor pede que uma apresentação de 80 slides seja condensada em 3 slides, ou uma página A3, não tenha dúvida: isto vai exigir de você mais que capacidade de síntese textual. Pensar visualmente, especialmente, criando diagramas é uma competência valiosa. Vejo isso durante meus cursos e vivência com profissionais das mais variadas indústrias. A boa notícia é que dá para aprender ;)
