Photo Inspiration Who doesn’t love baby photography, One of the most challenging and time consuming type of photography. It is easily one of the hardest kinds just because of the sheer amount of unexpected drama with the kids. It is also one of the most popular kind of photography too. You see baby photography all around. Beta: Turning Your LinkedIn Resume in Infographics There seems to be a commercial market emerging around the idea of automizing the creation of infographics. Toronto based start-up [] is currently developing an online application that can automatically translate any online LinkedIn profile into an online infographic. In particular, the new service aims to overcome the issue of reading overly long or highly complex resumes by showing the same information in a more readable and attractive way. The start-up has been coding the online application only since the last 2 months, and is currently still in private beta. First peeks behind the beta service show how this can become particularly useful for those that like to change jobs often, have a high amount of skills or know quite a lot of languages (unfortunately, my current own resume is not that compelling).

How to Use Twitter Plus Needlebase to Discover Fabulous Things My PR buddy Julie Wohlberg asked me tonight if I knew any good journalists she should invite to a social media conference in Florida called SheCon. ReadWriteWeb’s Sarah Perez in Tampa was apparently inaccessible, so I took a few minutes to explore some possibilities…with web applications! I used the DIY data extraction and normalization service Needlebase, along with Twitter list search engine Tlists and of course Twitter itself to discover a list of journalists in the South of the US who have more than 2000 Twitter followers. (Mapped above) It wasn’t hard to do at all! How to be a stylish designer.  You don’t know how to dress. Fashion has no meaning to you, other than buying a pair of jeans every two years or so. You don’t get the point of wearing anything otther than black.

How British do you feel? Visualised Visualising data online and in a newspaper is like the difference between speaking Spanish and conversing in French; there have the same roots and are ostensibly similar - but in practice are completely different. So it's proven with the results of our online Britishness survey, where we asked readers to rate how they felt about their nationality. The results provide a fascinating insight into how different parts of the UK really feel about the nation as a whole. Online, it works just like a Google map - where you can zoom in and see how people feel in each place, ranked by the maps of each country. Have completely failed to add a tutorial for making heat maps using Google Fusion Tables. To make this work, you have to first collect up some shapefiles – you can download them from open data sites, often as a KML, which can be directly uploaded or as shapefiles, which can be converted using Shape to FT. The Middle Super Output Areas used below are available for download from the ONS. Alternatively download this Google Fusion Table and then upload the downloaded file to your own Google account. To make a Fusion Table heat map, you will need a table containing your shapefiles and one containing your data. For this example, I’m using the claimant count data, which gives an indication of the number of people claiming jobseeker’s allowance at low levels. The Flight From Conversation At home, families sit together, texting and reading e-mail. At work executives text during board meetings. We text (and shop and go on Facebook) during classes and when we’re on dates. My students tell me about an important new skill: it involves maintaining eye contact with someone while you text someone else; it’s hard, but it can be done.

The Week In Data We’ve all been amazed, at one time or another, by pictures of Earth as seen from space. Particularly amazing are those images that allow us make out the contours of our continents by the lights of our megacities at night. Born of human beings’ domination and influence over their environment, this glittering vision of the world is part of the anthropocene. It inspired the Canadian anthropologist Felix Pharand-Deschenes of the site to create some magnificent visualizations of Earth using public data: cities, roads, railways, airlines, power lines, Internet cables…
