8 Reasons Why Pageless Design is the Future of the Web

8 Reasons Why Pageless Design is the Future of the Web | Digital Haystacks | Scoop.it
Pageless design frees websites from the outdated conventions of print design and fully utilizes the digital platform they’re built on.


Right now there is a paradigm shift happening in web design. It’s gaining traction but it’s going to take the leadership of designers and developers the world over to nudge the rest of the web in the right direction. What direction is that?

The one where we finally free websites from the outdated conventions of print design and fully utilize the digital platform they’re built on. Where we kick archaic elements like pages to the curb and instead create unique, satisfying, web native experiences.

Special Issue: Community Informatics and Open Government Data

In many countries across the world, discussions, policies and developments are actively emerging around open access to government data. It is believed that opening up government data to citizens is critical for enforcing transparency and accountability within the government. Open data is also seen as holding the potential to bring about greater citizens' participation, empowering citizens to ask questions of their governments via not only the data that is made openly available but also through the interpretations that different stakeholders make of the open data. Besides advocacy for open data on grounds of democracy, it is also argued that opening government data can have significant economic potential, generating new industries and innovations.

What makes a data visualization memorable?

What makes a data visualization memorable? | Digital Haystacks | Scoop.it

It's easy to spot a "bad" data visualization -- one packed with too much text, excessive ornamentation, gaudy colors, and clip art. Design guru Edward Tufte derided such decorations as redundant at best, useless at worst, labeling them "chart junk." Yet a debate still rages among visualization experts: Can these reviled extra elements serve a purpose? Taking a scientific approach to design, researchers from Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology are offering a new take on that debate. The same design elements that attract so much criticism, they report, can also make a visualization more memorable...

LED lighting officially has made the list of technologies for smart cities of the future. New York City will convert 250,000 streetlights to LEDs, a move that will save the city $14 million a year and literally change how residents see their city, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced last week.

Several cities, including Los Angeles, Seattle and Boston, already have committed to phasing out the traditional high-pressure sodium lights used in streetlights to LEDs. Bloomberg's office expects New York to be the largest conversion project in the U.S., marking a significant milestone for the adoption of LED lighting technology. The project, which began with pilot tests in 2009, is set for completion in 2017.

The Best Of Fritz Kahn, The Grandfather of Data Visualization

The Best Of Fritz Kahn, The Grandfather of Data Visualization | Digital Haystacks | Scoop.it

Born in 1888, German scientist, doctor, and author Fritz Kahn was the grandfather of modern data visualization.

We’re in the golden age of infographicw, where charts, graphs, and maps transform dense and dry facts into eye candy, and the Internet can’t get enough. But where did this data-viz craze begin?

Born in 1888, German scientist, doctor, and author Fritz Kahn was the grandfather of modern data visualization. A new 390-page monograph of Kahn’s work, published by Taschen, takes readers into an illustrated world that features winged fish, insect-size parachutists, and blood cells used as boats. Surreal as these scenes seem, they're actually meant to visualize scientific facts...
