Visually harnessing the power of digital information in Manuel Lima's new book...

In our multimedia-saturated times, the way we experience information constantly shifts. Using Google to instantly settle a debate or Facebook-stalking exes are just a couple common examples of the type of purely contemporary phenomena resulting from the ways digital formats have replaced traditional platforms. Another natural offshoot, the wash of infographics and meme-driven charts, also reflects growing obsessions with these vast quantities of facts and figures, and the tremendous potential for shaping how we understand our world. Manuel Lima's new book, Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information, explores the history of visually representing information and how imagery can interpret data.

Bring Your Data to Life Through Infographics « Sparkloft | visual data | Scoop.it

Gone are the days of Excel where data presentation was limited to generic graphic design. If you are a frequent reader of technology and social media blogs like Mashable, you may have noticed more posts on statistics like our society’s obsession with Facebook, or how Mac and PC users are different. The difference now is that such information is brought to life through visually engaging infographics, which present a set of data in a really fun, quirky manner.

Toolness » Blog Archive » Collusion

I’ve been reading Eli Pariser’s book The Filter Bubble and was fascinated by his description of how data collection companies operate. Independently of that, David Ascher suggested that I add a feature to the Hackasaurus goggles which helps learners understand how cookies and tracking works.

I actually didn’t know a lot about tracking myself, so I whipped up a Firefox add-on called Collusion to help me visualize it better. The results were a little unsettling.

I’ve put a demonstration up at collusion.toolness.org, which takes you through five popular websites and visualizes the data collection companies that track you across them. From there, you can download the add-on if you want to see the tracking visualization of your own browsing behavior evolve in real-time.

Data journalism at the Guardian: what is it and how do we do it?

Data journalism at the Guardian: what is it and how do we do it? | visual data | Scoop.it

Our 10 point guide to data journalism and how it's changing. Here's an interesting thing: data journalism is becoming part of the establishment and becoming the industry standard.

Data journalism is not graphics and visualisations. It's about telling the story in the best way possible. Sometimes that will be a visualisation or a map (see the work of David McCandless or Jonathan Stray).
But sometimes it's a news story. Sometimes, just publishing the number is enough.
If data journalism is about anything, it's the flexibility to search for new ways of storytelling. And more and more reporters are realising that. Suddenly, we have company - and competition. So being a data journalist is no longer unusual.
It's just journalism.
