All of our data journalism in one spreadsheet Data journalism and visualisation from the Guardian Illustration: Lisa Villani for the Guardian Today we have a list of all the data journalism produced here on the Guardian datablog. You can see what's been popular and get easy access to the data we have curated as this list shows each datablog post's associated spreadsheets, authors, the number of comments and retweets. By sorting the blog posts by the number of retweets, we can see that Iraq War Logs formed the base of our most retweeted post, followed by a recent post from David McCandless on fish stocks. Sorting by comments shows that the Fukushima nuclear power plant updates were the subject of the greatest discussion, closely followed by Every Doctor Who villain since 1963.

Introducing the YouTube Data Tools When it comes to social media, YouTube is maybe the most understudied platform considering it’s enormous popularity in the context of popular culture, politics, and commerce. As part of a long term project on APIs from a software/platform studies perspective, but also in relation to the technical fieldwork required for data-driven empirical work, I have been testing the interfaces of quite a number of services now. To make this investigation productive beyond conceptual reflection, I’ve been building digital methods research tools for every system I look at. Nothing beats getting your hands dirty. Since Google closed its search API some years ago, I haven’t really had a look at their services, but when a student of mine, Anouk Brouwer, started a thesis project on the booktube community on YouTube, I was not only fascinated by the booktube phenomenon and similar practices, but eager to revisit some older scripts and the new Data API v3 to see what kind of analyses would be possible.

Software Genomic rearrangements can cause disease and are implicated in many cancers. Being able to see the patterns in these changes across samples and patients is important. In the review article End-joining, Translocations and Cancer, Bunting and Nussenzweig demonstrate how compositing the genome circularly adds value and clarity to the presentation.

How It Works – Holacracy Dynamic Roles Replace Static Job Descriptions In most companies each person has exactly one job description. That description is often imprecise, outdated, and irrelevant to their day-to-day work. In Holacracy, people have multiple roles, often on different teams, and those role descriptions are constantly updated by the team actually doing the work. This allows people a lot more freedom to express their creative talents, and the company can take advantage of those skills in a way it couldn’t before. Since roles are not directly tied to the people filling them, people can hand-off and pick-up new roles fairly easily.

Digital editions of medieval texts: Opportunities and challenges I gave a CAMPS Lab on 23 September 2011 with the title above. I’ve been involved in producing websites and multimedia now since 1997, when I started working as a copy-editor on Microsoft’s Encarta Encyclopedia (in the days when the online Brittanica was our biggest rival, and well before Wikipedia was heard of).
