The future of User Interfaces
We’ve all heard it: according to Hal Varian, statistics is the next sexy job .
I think some of the stuff is lovely - like the solar system coming out of the TV, but most of it just creeps me out. I don't want everything to be on glass, it just makes everything less tangible and less personal, almost cold. I like having curtains up to my windows, I like cooking on a gas hob, I like reading from a real book, and I like shopping for clothes by looking around the shop and browsing, not by watching them all move about on a screen.
Journalism has always been about reporting facts and assertions and making sense of world affairs. No news there. But as we move further into the 21st century, we will have to increasingly rely on "data" to feed our stories, to the point that "data-driven reporting" becomes second nature to journalists.
Data journalism is huge. I don't mean 'huge' as in fashionable - although it has become that in recent months - but 'huge' as in 'incomprehensibly enormous'. It represents the convergence of a number of fields which are significant in their own right - from investigative research and statistics to design and programming.
