What are you doing with your data?

Video Report ScreenshotThis video report on data visualisation is awesome if you can spare the hour of watch – plus the rest of the time you will spend clicking on the various links.

A great piece of information visualisation/ consolidation in itself.

Something I will return to over and over.

A Rant…

I would normally have written a post on some topic this week but have seen numerous things that have just got me looking at the world going…what is wrong with all of us?

Much like a brainstorming process where you need to write the idea down to get it out so you can move to the next one, I am going to try to cleanse my mind of these things by writing them down here.  And then I will move on.

Some of these I have problems with for completely different reasons, and not just the main headline or point of the articles.  I have shown the links so you will know exactly what you are getting if you click on them (undoubtedly, some will cause offense).

So here goes, APPARENTLY…

– It’s a feel good story if a smoking toddler quits –

– The homeless are more responsible for their plight than we think –

– People can be not given a job, or interviewed, because they don’t have a positive online presence –

– The American left is in serious trouble because they aren’t prepared to play as dirty as the right –

– US Government protection from revealing sources should only extend to traditional media –

– There is a serious problem with letting people play a game from either side of a conflict when the game can be sold near an emotive location –

– You can exhibit (as art) a one night stand –

– We don’t have to think through hoax ads –

– You ought to be the gatekeeper of your own work, rather than be forced to deal with a gatekeeper that has already earned their audience (I normally love Seth Godin’s stuff)  –

– We should be careful about those positive archetypes –

– You can get away with it, if no one wants to come after you –

– We can trust announcements –

– We only do things because someone else has an agenda –


I’m sure that I will feel better soon….

Now. Moving On.
