SVS Animation 3827 - Perpetual Ocean

SVS Animation 3827 - Perpetual Ocean This visualization shows ocean surface currents around the world during the period from June 2005 through December 2007. The visualization does not include a narration or annotations; the goal was to use ocean flow data to create a simple, visceral experience. This visualization was produced using model output from the joint MIT/JPL project: Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean, Phase II or ECCO2. ECCO2 uses the MIT general circulation model (MITgcm) to synthesize satellite and in-situ data of the global ocean and sea-ice at resolutions that begin to resolve ocean eddies and other narrow current systems, which transport heat and carbon in the oceans.
The Awesome "Getting to Know Alexis Thompson" Infographic The Awesome "Getting to Know Alexis Thompson" Infographic Although she's already quite familiar to fans of women's golf, Alexis Thompson hasn't yet become a household name, despite the fact that she's made golf history... a couple of times already. At age 16, the newly crowned Navistar LPGA Classic Champion is seen by many in golf media as the great American hope for women's golf.... and some are even suggesting she may singlehandedly save the LPGA. However, most of the folks I've been speaking to at the driving range and on the golf course this week, have no idea who Alexis Thompson is. Granted, these people have mainly been men... recreational golfers who probably don't know Ricky Fowler from Dustin Johnson, either. In any case, the ascension of Alexis is an engaging story, that presents us with a compelling young player, almost certainly destined for LPGA stardom, and that's what inspired me to create this "Getting to Know Alexis Thompson" infographic. Consider it a visual representation of random info on Alexis.
Storage is a tricky part of the cloud environment. We want it to be fast, to be network-accessible and to be as reliable as possible. One way is to go to the shop and buy yourself a SAN solution from a prominent vendor for solid money.

StackOps Community - nubes privadas-Mozilla Firefox FABuloso is a python tool to easily organize and deploy an OpenStack architecture using Fabric. FABuloso manages configuration with components within catalogs (take a look at the overview for more info about the different parts of FABuloso). Why another deployment tool for OpenStack? We know there are really cool tools out there, but we think we have to focus on doing things simpler and easier. That’s the reason why we started developing FABuloso to deploy OpenStack clouds at StackOps. We think the OpenStack community suffers of the ‘Golden Hammer’ syndrome about all these nice deployment tools.

Perceptual Edge We are overwhelmed by information, not because there is too much, but because we don't know how to tame it. Information lies stagnant in rapidly expanding pools as our ability to collect and warehouse it increases, but our ability to make sense of and communicate it remains inert, largely without notice.

Perceptual Edge

Show Me the Numbers Most presentations of quantitative information are poorly designed—painfully so, often to the point of misinformation. This problem, however, is rarely noticed and even more rarely addressed. We use tables and graphs to communicate quantitative information: the critical numbers that measure the health, identify the opportunities, and forecast the future of our organizations. Even the best information is useless, however, if its story is poorly told.
