Thanks to the team at Scoop.it we now have the data to prove what I've FELT. In an extensive study the Scoop.it team shifted my thinking on Slideshare. Always knew Slideshare was POWERFUL SEO VooDoo because I've had several decks BLOW UP such as:http://www.slideshare.net/martinmartysmith/storytelling-new-seo Absolute #1 position on "Storytelling is the new SEO" and has been top ranked for over a year. http://www.slideshare.net/martinsellingzoe/content-marketing-network This deck held on for a year and has slide out of ranking now.

The other paradigm they shifted for me today was thinking of Slideshare as an important "visual marketing" tool. Decks are LEAN, FAST and VIRAL so great ways to share and build authority and traffic. Just wish I could get my Slideshare profile styled better. Anyone know the secret sauce for that? Great work Scoopiteers!

Science may be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be ugly. These images, from a new exhibit at the British Library, show how beautiful scientific data can be.
The exhibit features classic illustrations dating to 1603, including John Snow’s map of London’s SoHo that’s credited with revealing a contaminated water pump as the source of a 1854 cholera outbreak. There also are beautiful modern visualizations of data from satellites and gene sequencers. The exhibit, Beautiful Science: Picturing Data, Inspiring Insight, runs through May 26.
