How can a life be visualized? Can a happy life be captured in numbers and diagrams? The Harvard Study of Adult Development is the longest prospective study of mental and physical well-being ever conducted. For 72 years, researchers at Harvard have been following 824 individuals through war, career, marriage and divorce, parenthood and grandparenthood, and old age. In this book, I've taken 10 representative case studies and visualized their salient character traits, personal timeline, social supports, and physical health to draw conclusions about "the happy life."

YouTube Map My Summer [youtube.com] is a new YouTube experiment that tries to provide a more meaningful interface to recently submitted Australian videos. In the end, the project should create a compelling archive of the events, experiences and people from all around Australia during summer (remember, it is summer now down under). In essence, the project tries to filter the related metadata according to the categories Activity, People or Place, while it maps all the videos on a (unfortunately invisible...) map of Australia. As a result, people can discover those specific videos that take place on a beach, show extraterrestrials, or somehow relate to a wedding. In addition, statistical data about the submitted movies according to their geographical location can be discovered through interactive donut graphs that are colored according to the three categories.

Data This map distills more than 4000 moves from over 1700 people, collected in an informal survey by WNYC , a New York based public radio station. For generating the geo–coordinates from the entered ZIP codes, I used the free bulk geocoder at gpsvisualizer.com . I did not check every single data row in detail, so a few of the moves might be misrepresented. Mapping
Over the next little while, I will be publishing a series of posts that document some ideas and discussions that I have presented in talks and lectures over the last few years. This somewhat quickly-written post is a discussion of fitness landscapes and evolutionary computing, which expands on a part of a presentation titled ‘Emergence’ that I gave several times in 2008 & 2009. Navigating Fitness Landscapes Many of us, in one way or another, do things that require us to come up with good ideas. Indeed, most of us are looking not only for good ideas, but the best ones – within whichever framework or context we are operating in. How often, if ever, do we find that best idea?
If you are just like me, you might have been anxiously waiting for the day Nicholas Felton would finally release the 6th volume of the infographic series titled the "Feltron Annual Reports". Back in 2005 , it set the beginning of the crazy and potentially self-destructing " viral " infographic rage we know all too well today . So here is version 2010 [feltron.com], visually seductive and detailed as ever, revealing various personal self-tracking parameters that range from international travels and weather reports to US naturalizations and electrocardiogram measurements. The catch? This year's report seems not to deal about Nicholas Felton himself, but focuses solely on his father, reconstructed by the calendars, slides and other artifacts in Nicholas' possession.
That is, some of us do. Others use data. A timer running on Robin Barooah’s computer tells him that he has been living in the United States for 8 years, 2 months and 10 days. At various times in his life, Barooah — a 38-year-old self-employed software designer from England who now lives in Oakland, Calif. — has also made careful records of his work, his sleep and his diet. A few months ago, Barooah began to wean himself from coffee.

Bonsoir Fin d’une grosse journée, pourquoi ne pas apprécier cette série de clichés d’un reporter de guerre , tous réalisés avec un iPhone ! Réalisées par David Guttenfelder, ces photos ont été prises en Afghanistan pendant les affrontements armés. Le défit est là, l’objet téléphone, plus “discret” et commun qu’un appareil photo permet, peut-être, de se dédouaner de certaines contraintes de la photographie ? Je pense que oui ! > En savoir plus
