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.

Vizualize.Me - Visualize your resume in one click

Vizualize.Me is launching soon- make sure to sign up and get in line for an invite!

 

Vizualize.me has built a Web app that ingests a user’s work history and then spits out a design-y timeline, with details about each experience layered in.
Data like this is often messy, so, rather than trying to get users to manually enter their work history, Vizualize.me just connects to LinkedIn, pulls out the already-structured data, and converts it into the visualization.

In their 1991 Pulitzer-winning book The Ants, E.O. Wilson and Bert Hölldobler described an ant colony as a super-organism – a vast social network. The ants in the colony communicate with each other by following chemical trails left by other ants. As we browse the web today, we are provided with social proof of quality by sites that let us know what our trusted friends have liked or shared recently.

What is Data Visualization?

What is Data Visualization? | visual data | Scoop.it

The goal of data visualization is to present data in a way that is both understandable and interesting, but also has a certain visual aesthetic. It draws in the reader and presents the data in a way that brings a new perspective; it takes the viewer on a journey through the data.

Storytelling and Curation: digital technology allows us to tell tales in innovative new ways | The Guardian

Storytelling and Curation: digital technology allows us to tell tales in innovative new ways | The Guardian | visual data | Scoop.it

Human experience is a series of never-ending, overlapping stories bumping into one another in expected and unexpected ways. Our days are made up of personal narratives of good and evil, joy and conflict, magic potions and angry gnomes.

 

They are naturally co-creations based on a push and pull of projection and interpretation. We interpret, analyse and synthesise the characters and events in our lives to help us make sense of the world, and these have been translated by professionals into folk tales, myths, legends, pantomime, bestsellers, soap operas and Hollywood blockbusters.

 

Storytellers are simply curators of information who finesse the elements of a yarn into a beginning, middle and end.

 

But the tools they use to tell tales are evolving, becoming more modular and tailored, more participatory and more engaging than just the printed word or the moving image.....
