Open data for accountable governance: Is data literacy the key to citizen engagement? | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
How can technology connect citizens with governments, and how can we foster, harness, and sustain the citizen engagement that is so essential to anti-corruption efforts? UNDP has worked on a number of projects that use technology to make it easier for citizens to report corruption to authorities: Serbia’s SMS corruption reporting in the health sectorMontenegro’s ‘be responsible app’Kosovo’s online corruption reporting site kallxo.comThese projects are showing some promising results, and provide insights into how a more participatory, interactive government could develop. At the heart of the projects is the ability to use citizen generated data to identify and report problems for governments to address.

The Aha Moment - How Entrepreneurs Realized What To Do In Life

The Aha Moment - How Entrepreneurs Realized What To Do In Life | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Before any entrepreneur became successful there was a time they did not know what to do. And then the aha moment happened. How?About 2200 years ago Archimedes stepped into his bath and exclaimed, “Eureka!” It was a moment of sudden discovery. The eureka effect. A moment of deep insight. It’s an epiphany which translates as “striking appearance.” In that moment a previously unsolvable problem becomes suddenly clear and obvious.Before The Aha MomentLife can be divided into two periods. Before you know why you are alive and after. In between there is just a single moment – the Aha! moment. One brainwave that turns a person into a person on a mission.Here we show the moments that turned famous people onto their missions. Even though for them it was a process to get to that moment, there was a catalyst that one day made them say, “Aha!”What Makes Us AhaWhat brings the Aha moment?Inconvenience. GoPro founder who struggled to take a picture of himself while surfing.Limited resources. Ikea founder could not fit a table in his small car, so he thought to take off the legs.Pain and tragedy. Samuel Morse received a letter about his wife’s illness after she was already buried. Letters took a long time back then. He raced to see her, but it was too late. Grief-stricken, he decided to forever change how people talk to each other and invented the telegraph.The aha moment comes at different ages. Here are a few examples. Is it ever too late to have the aha moment? Some entrepreneurs had them well into their fifties. Were they thinking it was never too late?Get your Free Business Plan Template here: http://bit.ly/1aKy7km

The Science Of Sound Gets Visualized In This A/V Experiment | Nicolas Bernier interview

The Science Of Sound Gets Visualized In This A/V Experiment | Nicolas Bernier interview | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
Yesterday, Montreal-based sound artist, performer and composer Nicolas Bernier presented the third and last of frequencies, a series of artistic experimentations that focus on groundbreaking acoustic research at the crossroads between science, light, and sound-generating processes. Entitled frequencies (light quanta), the final piece in Bernier's project is a dynamic data visualization that blurs the boundaries among infinity, photon physical laws, electromagnetic forces, and cutting-edge audio-visual creative processes. Consisting of a unique combination of a sonic micro-particle soundtrack playing alongside an auto-generative animation illuminated by hundreds of quantum physics-inspired visuals laser printed on acrylic panels, frequencies (light quanta) is a 3D audiovisual installation that allows viewers to explore the infinitesimal through a granular-synthesized physical space.

10 Tools to Create Beautiful Infographics and Visualize Data - noupe | Data Visualization & Open data | Scoop.it
They used to say content is king. But what really makes up content? Gone are the days when “content” meant purely text. Today, if you want to engage and enchant your customers, your content must have some visual cues. The human brain processes visual information much quicker than text. And with web 2.0 visuals like infographics, you can convey complex, boring data in a meaningful manner. Although infographics make things simpler, it can be time-consuming to create them. Here is a list of my top 10 tools to create your own beautiful infographics and more visual content (no Photoshop required!).

Making Scoopit to be social & to createscommunity can help your web design too.Things every website design can improve discussed in our Curagami post (www.curagami.com/featured/redesigning-scoopit-web-design/ )::* Set your “stage” (webpages) to be aligned in a “hierarchy” of need.* Create feedback loops and expose them (like nonprofits use thermometers to track donations).* Don’t hide your analytics SHARE THEM.* Double down on winners, leave laggards behind.* KNOW what is winning so you can double down.* Ask for and prize User Generated Content.* Share MORE and then SHARE MORE.@Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.comBrian is a great web marketer and one of the POWER users of Scoop.it. Here is a great comment he left on Curagami about this post:Marty I agree, I never promote my Scoopit homepage as it has no real value for my visitor. My Google analytics show I get very few visitors to the homepage which makes since because most visitors to Scoop.it are not members so can’t follow us via Scoop.it, but they are following other ways because 48% of them are return visitors.Looking further into the analytics not many go to the topic homepage either, so I’m testing new ways within my marketing strategy for Scoop.it to engage.Eg. Pop up and slide up call-to-actions as seen on my hhttp://www.scoop.it/t/marketinghits topic. This pop up also show when someone is coming to a shared post on my topic not just the homepage. Right now it a newsletter sign up, I’m thinking of doing polls, follow me, and maybe even a context are two. On my newsletter sign up is see a 1.4 ctr%It sure would be nice to have some customization options for the homepage.** Brian is the MASTER of organization. Check out his Scoop.it presentation (@Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com ). That is a PR6 webpage using OPT (Other People's Templates) and tool (so impressive). Team at Scoop.it really listens to Brian because he has accomplished a lot with their tool. The Scoop.it team is responsive in general, so, thanks to BY and others, we may get a "homepage" we can use.
