Sudhir Venkatesh et le langage universel de la donnée

Ce compte rendu est une version modifiée d’un précédent compte rendu publié dans le n°4, vol. 49 de la Revue Française de Sociologie. Il est possible de consulter cette version originale à partir du portail CAIRN. L’auteur tient à remercier le comité de la Revue Française de Sociologie pour l’autorisation qui lui a été accordée de reprendre ce texte. Sudhir Venkatesh, sociologue à l’université Columbia, spécialiste du ghetto noir américain, est aujourd’hui l’un des sociologues les plus en vue aux États-Unis. Il a connu ses premiers moments de célébrité académique en offrant aux auteurs du bestseller Freakonomics le matériau nécessaire à la rédaction du chapitre « Pourquoi les dealers vivent-ils encore chez leur maman ?

L’économie souterraine du ghetto. David McCandless: The beauty of data visualization. “Data Is the New Soil” - CJR. L'infographie des infographies. Google le Mastodonte. Filed under: All Infographics , Internet Infographics | 11 Comments » Just how massive is Google (in real terms) you ask? More specifically, how many pages are in its index? That is the question this aesthetically pleasing infographic attempts to answer. Even though the precise number of pages in Google’s index is a closely-guarded secret, this graphic relies on math to make an educated guess at the exact number. And that number is.. That’s quite a lot of pages if I do say so. The graphic covers many other aspects of Google besides its index, such as gmail, youtube (which it acquired in 2006), the business side of Google, and other “stuff” (ie. random facts). Now, let’s delve into the grading segment.

Design: A- This graphic’s design is fast and furious. Content: B+ The content side contains many unique facts–not run of the mill items either. Overall, I was impressed by this work.

The World of Data

Cartographier sa boite mail. Bill Zeller, a PhD student at Princeton, sent me the link to his project "graph your inbox", that is an attempt to visualize the "data" in your Gmail account.

Cartographier sa boite mail

Seems to me that it acts as a sophisticated "search my mail" engine. The most interesting part is the ability to click on a point or a bar in one of the charts, and have the corresponding emails show up in the preview panel. This interactive ability is also available in the modern commercial graphing packages, and they are extremely useful for data exploration. Technically, this is a compelling achievement. The amounts of data being processed, organized, summarized, plotted. I think he needs to figure out some compelling use cases for something like this.
