Palm Top Theater Exhibition Palm Top Theater Exhibition The International Film Festival Rotterdam has brought cinema to the large screen. We think that the intimacy of small mobile screens are giving new impulses to the cinematic experience. V2_ will present a series of films and animations small enough to watch in the palm of your hand.

Infographic: What Tools Developers Actually Use Infographic: What Tools Developers Actually Use The folks at interviewed 500 developers and compiled this profile of the tools that they actually use. A few stalwarts predominate, such as Git, Eclipse, AWS, Dropbox, MySQL, and Google Analytics. But there were a few surprises too, including 23% using Notepad++ as their text editor and 8% using Heroku to host their apps. Many of the categories are wide open. All of those surveyed are from companies of less than 100 people from around the world. (Click to enlarge.)

Never trust a statistic that you haven’t visualized yourself. It’s election time in Germany and, as usual, there are tons of opinion polls telling us who is going to win the election anyway. It is debatable whether or not pre-election polls are healthy for our democracy in general, but at least everybody agrees that the polls should be kind of neutral. And if they are not, the institutes publishing the polls should be blamed publicly.

Grip Ltd. presents: 101 Thoughts on Advertising « Big Orange Slide What are they on about now?People love lists. From the Ten Commandments to the inspired hilarity of McSweeneys, lists unite random elements into something that feels cohesive, organized, and harmonious – words that don’t often characterize the day-to-day of the ad industry. And what a day-to-day it is. We are consumed by our trade. We talk about it, blog about it, criticize and poeticize it. Grip Ltd. presents: 101 Thoughts on Advertising « Big Orange Slide
Get the Data | About the Data Andrew and Louis, two engineers frustrated by the opacity of the federal budget, took publicly available government data going back to 1985 and built a database to store and organize it. Their site, , allows you to browse this database and relate the amounts to your own yearly income tax. Read more about the data... Get the Data |

Radiolaria lets you manipulate a web of connected cells to create a huge variety of biologically-inspired patterns. Each object you create starts as a basic hexagonal mesh which you can change as much, or as little, as you want with a variety of tools. Choose a sharp, geometric look or a rounded, more organic style. Use attractive and repulsive forces to disrupt the pattern's initial symmetry, or give it a twist with spiraling forces. Click inside any cell to subdivide it into three smaller cells -- those smaller cells can even be further subdivided to add more intricate detail to your design.
What’s Your Better Life Index? – OECD Better Life Index Your Better Life Index is designed to let you visualise and compare some of the key factors – like education, housing, environment, and so on – that contribute to well-being in OECD countries. It’s an interactive tool that allows you to see how countries perform according to the importance you give to each of 11 topics that make for a better life. What’s the point of Your Better Life Index? There’s been a lot of debate lately on measuring the well-being of societies – is wealth all that matters, or should we be looking at other things, like the balance between work and the rest of our lives? The Index aims to involve citizens in this debate, and to empower them to become more informed and engaged in the policy-making process that shapes all our lives. Return to top
Nov 22, 2011 Music doesn’t have to be invisible. The intangible nature of music drives people to add visual and now interactive layers on top of it. We’ll examine how three projects visualize different aspects of musical data. Simple interactions turn static timelines into informative media experiences, maps into a means of dissecting the time and place of musical diversification and graphs into representations of the music itself. Produced by the Adobe Experience Design team, 100 Years with the San Francisco Symphony is a detailed visualization of the institution’s history all wrapped up in an attractive spiral-shaped timeline. The Why Axis » Making Music Visual: Interact with music history, taxonomy and anatomy.

Patrick Garvin: Blog» Blog Archive » 4 reasons why Adobe Flash was not a waste of our time November 15th, 2011 at 14:24 Last week, Adobe Systems announced it would stop making Flash technology for mobile devices and would instead focus on HTML5. Flash’s end has been predicted for the last few years now, as it is not supported on the iPhone or the iPad. Flash runs on other mobile devices, but Apple products are the Marcia Brady of their kind. If Apple rejects you, you’re kinda sorta screwed. For many graphic artists who joined newsrooms before the big push for “interactive graphics,” Flash was the first program we used to make web graphics with rollovers.

Work · Imazon This time, Google approached us to help them develop a new tool for Imazon, a non-profit research institution that performs advanced analysis on the changes of Amazon area natural resources. Imazon needed a new tool to help visualize and analyze data-intensive map layers and satellite aerial imagery. In the first phase of this project we developed a tool to visualize the outputs of deforestation detection algorithms. Ultimately, the tool will help Imazon scientists and others in their work to detect the deforestation as early as possible and fire the warnings to authorities to stop it. What we made:
