Jun 21 2009 There are plenty of perfectly acceptable and functional websites out there that don’t use dynamic content. But what if you want to give your site that little something extra that makes your visitors say “Wow”?
This is because information is always relative. Always. Before you can undertake any kind of visualization exercise, you need to know what question you want to answer, and for whom. A look at the history of information will confirm this point. Science is a process by which we attempt to compare our perceptions with something we call “reality” but in fact reality is something we can never really know for sure. Like the flickering shadows on the wall of Plato’s cave, reality is something we can only see dimly, because it’s distorted by our perceptions and beliefs.
Content doesn’t always have to stay visible. Sometimes it can hide in the most unexpected locations. In this tutorial we’ll start with a cartoon themed header, build two different states for content and animate a transition between them using jQuery. This is going to be a big undertaking. I’ll warn you now, there will be a lot of code to copy and paste.

Pattie Maes' talk at the recent TED Conference provides a chilling reminder of how careless people can be and how easy it is to mislead sheeple . I’m a huge fan of most of what I’ve seen come from TED, but Pattie’s presentation demonstrates a measure of irresponsibility, misrepresented facts, and shallow thinking seldom witnessed outside of a politician’s stump speech. In her TED talk Dr. Maes makes it very clear that computer scientists shouldn’t pretend to be actual scientists. In fact the “science” she represents here violates, um, science …and common sense, for that matter.

It's my great pleasure to announce here BELIV'10: BEyond time and errors: novel evaLuation methods for Information Visualization , a workshop on infovis evaluation I am organizing together with Adam Perer from IBM and Heidi Lam from Google. The idea of the workshop was born in 2006 almost by chance when me, my phd advisor Giuseppe (Beppe) Santucci , and Catherine Plaisant had the possibility to organize a workshop at AVI 2006 and felt that it was time to gather some people and talk about the problem of evaluation in infovis. The first workshop was a real success with very interesting discussions and (highly cited) papers out of it. After this experience we thought that having a BELIV every two years could be a good idea and the right time frame.
