QuoTED 2015 | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
In our last five years of attending the conference, TED 2015 might have been the best yet. Now firmly settled in its new Vancouver, BC home, this year’s production was deep, meaningful and overall more simple than in years past. Performances were moving, but not shocking. Talks were grouped in a manner that kept us in a cohesive headspace throughout each session. And the flow of events, exhibitions and conversations fostered serendipitous interactions and intellectual explorations. Over time, all of the talks will roll out at TED.com, but in the meantime, here are some thought-provoking quotations from the week in the order that we heard them.

Hands-on with Vivaldi, the new Web browser for power users

Hands-on with Vivaldi, the new Web browser for power users | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
It's been a long time since a brand new desktop browser landed on the Web. Web newcomers might even be forgiven for thinking that there have always been just four such browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.

After the vicious early days when the world of Web browsers closely resembled the ruthless world of the railroad barons a century earlier, the browser market settled down to something pretty boring. First there was IE and Firefox. A few years later, Apple introduced Safari. Several years after that, Google launched Chrome. And since Chrome arrived in 2008, the Web hasn't seen another major browser launch—until now.

UK man wins court case against BBC for 911 cover up

UK man wins court case against BBC for 911 cover up | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Tony Rooke refused to pay a TV license fee because the BBC intentionally misrepresented facts about the 9/11 attacks, he alleged. It is widely known that the BBC reported the collapse of World

Trade Center Building 7 over 20 minutes before it occurred. WTC 7 was a 47-story skyscraper that was not hit by a plane on 9/11 but collapsed at free-fall speed later that day.

So Rooke said the BBC had to have had prior knowledge to a terror attack making them complicit in the attack. He presented the BBC footage to the judge along with a slew of other evidence, and the judge agreed that Rooke had a reasonable case to protest. Rooke was found not guilty and he was not fined for failure to pay the licensing fee

Zero SR: An electric motorcycle that flexes muscles without any roughness

Zero SR: An electric motorcycle that flexes muscles without any roughness | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
It’s finally possible to experience superbike levels of performance while being a tree hugger at the same time.
After test-driving a Tesla Model S P85, I got hooked on the smooth, seamless performance of electric motors. Since Teslas are out of this journalist’s price range, I bought the next best thing: a 2014 Zero SR electric motorcycle.

Every gearhead knows the more torque, the better the performance.

Consider this: The Zero SR has 106 pound-feet of torque. That compares to the Ducati Panigale R’s 100 pound-feet. The Ducati is widely regarded as one of the best-performing superbikes available, capable of zero to 60 mph runs in just 3 seconds. Zero says the SR does it in 3.3 seconds. Not bad, considering a 2015 Ducati Panigale R starts at $33,995 while a 2015 Zero SR starts at $17,345.

The downsizing options continue to rise as simplicity becomes the name of the game for more people. While this micro camper is not a full home in itself, it certainly sets itself apart from typical campers given its size, weight, and portability.

The Wide Path Camper is designed with the bicycle camper in mind. It features windows, a 97 x 200 cm bed, 300L of storage space, and a sitting area for 2 people. It even has an optional table on the outside for cooking and eating. All this is packed into a foldable unit that extends into its full size in only 3 minutes. The total weight of the unit is only 88 lbs! The designers say they have even more features in mind including sun-covers, solar cells, and more.

Online platform 'Open Humans' launches to share DNA, other data

Online platform 'Open Humans' launches to share DNA, other data | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
People eager to share personal information beyond what's on their Facebook profile have another outlet: an online platform launching on Tuesday will let them give scientists information about their genomes, gut bacteria and other biological data.

The "Open Humans Network" aims to make more health-related data available for scientists to mine for discoveries and also help volunteers make that data more accessible to more researchers. Rather than volunteering for only a single study, participants would let any legitimate researcher use their data, even though that poses potential threats to privacy.

"It's like open-sourcing your body," said project director Jason Bobe.

Open Humans is launching when scientists are increasingly concerned that valuable genetic and other data are being kept under wraps. Academic researchers do not want to give competitors access for fear they will be scooped on new discoveries, and gene-testing companies keep data private so they can profit from it, said geneticist George Church of Harvard University.

"Data hoarders range from two-person labs to large companies," he said.

Open Humans seeks to counter that.

At www.openhumans.org, people can sign up for one or more of (so far) three ongoing studies.

Not a web designer or developer? You may prefer free tools for creating infographics.

 

As author, data journalist and information designer David McCandless said in his TED talk: “By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map. And when you’re lost in information, an information map is kind of useful.”

 

There are many different ways of telling a story, but everything starts with an idea. So to help you get started we’ve rounded up some of the most awesome data visualization tools available on the web....
