Hello again, as the off-duty excuse of boreal summer fades out...we have some little news!
BrowsEarth is proposed framework for social engagement and currency around common-interest "success stories" and emerging action plans in the ongoing global transition to thrivable multi-cultures. It consists of a modular set of formats and protocol for contextualized social metadata aggregation and navigation in the space of online media content around demonstrable public-benefit effort and accomplishment. The primary ingredients are:
Basic concept: create adaptable shared reference structures and symbology for cross-platform semantic linking and pattern reinforcement in non-fiction story-form media The Prospective Eco-Social Ontology (PESO) is an approach toward interoperable taxonomic systems for navigation and aggregation of diverse content libraries and topical threads in the realm of "common good" environmental and cultural regeneration work.

Described as a “knowledge collider,” and now with a pledge of one billion euros from the European Union, the Living Earth Simulator is a new big data and supercomputing project that will attempt to uncover the underlying sociological and psychological laws that underpin human civilization.
On my travels last week I came across this seriously cool new social network visualisation system called Skyrails . What I find particularly exciting about it is that the output looks like something out of the pages of Masamune Shirow’s “ Ghost in the Shell ” flying through the virtual noosphere . Whilst the utility of such visualisations are still questionable it’s always good to see innovation in this area and makes my own attempts look tame in comparison! “ Noosphere (aka metaconsciousness): Human communication and interaction may eventually advance to the stage where even conscious thought may be globalized and massively shared.
The adage [ citation needed ] " A picture is worth a thousand words " refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image. It also aptly characterizes one of the main goals of visualization , namely making it possible to absorb large amounts of data quickly. The expression "Use a picture.
The WebGL Globe is an open platform for geographic data visualization.

This is actually a worthwhile little time waster. Internet-map.net is a website that depicts websites as different sized circles based on the size of their audience, and their relatedness to one another based on their proximity on the map.
We all know that images are compelling. The growth of visual content has been on a rapid upward trajectory over the last 12 months.

This website, which contains the material of the course VA312, taught at Sabanci University , Istanbul, Turkey; attempts to walk you through the long and diverse history of a particular aspect of human endeavour: The translation of ideas, stories and concepts that are largely textual and/or word based into a visual format, i.e. visual communication. Wikipedia defines visual communication as: The primary tool by which man has visualised ideas is through the usage of writing and, by extension, type: Writing/type is the visual manifestation of the spoken word. And words are what we communicate with. Thus it is no overstatement when we say that type is the essence of visual communication and by extension of visual communication design. Type, where it is present, is simply the single most important element that you put on a page, since it inherently carries the essence of communication and communication is what our subject of study as graphic/multimedia designers is all about.
