Sarah Miller's curator insight, February 11, 2013 11:12 AM

This has got to be one of my favorite scoop it articles that I have come across yet! It was very interesting to see how far YouTube has come along since the year 2005 when the first official video was uploaded to YouTube. The article takes you through the years and the biggest achievements that YouTube has accomplished up to this present day. It also includes interesting facts about the Social Media network that I never knew about before, got me more interested in using YouTube and creating my own channel or even subscribing to others!

Data Visualization: Communication & Creativity

Data Visualization: Communication & Creativity | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Visual communication skills are alien to some in the research industry, but they needn’t be. Data visualisation can become part of the research process through smart hiring, skills training and expert partnerships.


Data visualisation should not be regarded as an end in itself; the real point to data visualisation - the value that it brings to research buyers and suppliers - is as an aid to storytelling. It’s about seeing the patterns in the data that flush out a story and then help you to start telling that story. Only by doing that can you move data off the spreadsheet and out into the real world of consumer behaviour and preferences.

The best analogy and the one used frequently, is with journalism. It’s no surprise either that many great examples of data visualisation come from the publishing and media sectors. Journalists face the same challenge that we do of sifting large amounts of often conflicting data to arrive at a truth or an insight...
