In Writing, Art, And Music, Everybody Steals - David Shields

In Writing, Art, And Music, Everybody Steals - David Shields | Cool Media | Scoop.it
The citation of sources belongs to the realms of journalism and scholarship, not art. Citation domesticates the work, flattens it, denudes, it, robs it of its excitement, risk, danger.

Includes examples of sampler and remixing from the history of Western civilization, most ancient to most recent.

Interaction Design for Data Visualizations

Interaction Design for Data Visualizations | Cool Media | Scoop.it
Interactive data visualizations are an exciting way to engage and inform large audiences. They enable users to focus on interesting parts and details, to customize the content and even the graphical form, and to explore large amounts of data. At their best, they facilitate a playful experience that is way more engaging than static infographics or videos.

Several ideas and concepts of interaction design for data visualizations are presented in this post, using 11 examples from the web. The overall concepts featured include:

The Basics: Highlighting and Details on Demand Making More Data Accessible: User-driven Content Selection Showing Data in Different Ways: Multiple Coordinated Visualizations Showing Data in Different Ways: User-driven Visual Mapping Changes Integrating Users’ Viewpoints and Opinions

Visit the complete article for numerous links, useful visuals and specific details on how to understand, implement and evaluate interactive design elements used in data visualization design.

Great article, I really like the idea of interactive information with details on demand. As an interaction designer I always try to balance content management and usability. Here are some interesting examples that made me consider a complete information surface vs a deep level on demand architecture.
