Designers often get a little excited and put too much fancy design to fill in the space. The best content marketing brands are the ones that know how use content to drive conversions and pushing the boundaries.

Data Pointed Behind the Scenes at the Guardian Datablog Behind the Scenes at the Guardian Datablog Figure 17. The Guardian Datablog production process visualized (The Guardian) When we launched the Datablog, we had no idea who would be interested in raw data, statistics and visualizations. As someone pretty senior in my office said: “why would anyone want that?”. The Guardian Datablog — which I edit — was to be a small blog offering the full datasets behind our news stories. As a news editor and journalist working with graphics, it was a logical extension of work I was already doing, accumulating new datasets and wrangling with them to try to make sense of the news stories of the day. The question I was asked has been answered for us. We’ve had the MPs expenses scandal — Britain’s most unexpected piece of data journalism — the resulting fallout has meant Westminster is now committed to releasing huge amounts of data every year. Gradually, the Datablog’s work has reflected and added to the stories we faced. It may seem new, but really it’s not.

Periodic Table of Storytelling by *ComputerSherpa on deviantART domas mituzas [Carte] Les collaborations scientifiques dans le monde Pour savoir comment se font les collaborations entre scientifiques à travers le monde, Olivier H. Beauchesne a réalisé une carte à partir de données bibliographiques accessibles à tous. Il nous explique comment. Article publié sur OWNISciences sous le titre, Carte des collaborations scientifiques à travers le monde J’ai été très impressionné par la “friendship map” réalisée par Paul Butler, stagiaire chez Facebook, et j’ai réalisé que j’avais accès à un jeu de données similaire. Mon employeur, Science-Metrix, est une entreprise d’évaluation biblométrique. Grâce à ces données, j’ai pu extraire et agréger les différentes collaborations scientifiques entre villes à travers le monde. Les étapes suivantes sont les mêmes que celles de la “friendship map” de Facebook. Une carte très haute résolution et zoomable est disponible à cette adresse : Article initialement publié sur “Stuff I Made“. Traduction par Pierre Ropert. Merci à Olivier Laffargue

UrbanMovements | Flows, Behaviour and Networks in the City La veille comme art de vivre du futur Ce qui est aujourd'hui un comportement d'ultra-connectés sera demain la norme si l'on souhaite avoir une vie sociale normale. Voici un article qui a été publié dans l’excellent ebook : Regards croisés sur la veille (sur le blog du modérateur), qui fait intervenir plein de spécialistes pros du digital (et moi-même). Un article prospectif qui m’a donné l’occasion de poser toutes les idées concernant l’évolution de la veille digitale. Vous excuserez la longueur, cet article est fait pour être lu sur papier ou tablette.« Touff de la tribu des Görzg grimpa sur une colline. Trois jours que sa tribu et lui n’avaient rien mangé. Tous les matins, les chasseurs partaient explorer la région avec de grands cris mais revenaient bredouilles chaque soir sous les lamentations des femmes et les pleurs des enfants. Information = survie Et cette leçon primordiale a accompagné l’être humain pendant des millénaires. L’homme veille sans le savoir, une question d’adaptation Veiller quoi ? Image CC Flickr
