How British do you feel? VisualisedVisualising 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. It works using the Google Maps API, feeding from a spreadsheet form that readers are essentially filling in.

How to Use Twitter Plus Needlebase to Discover Fabulous ThingsMy 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! Here they are in one Twitter list you can follow: Top South East Journalists What I did was use Tlists to find 3 Twitter lists of 500 journalists (this one, this one and this one), curated by people I was familiar with. This method isn’t complete until you say: hey everyone reading this post, if I missed anyone – let me know and we’ll add you to the list! How does one do such things at all though?

THE URANIUM CAFEBio Mapping / Emotion Mapping by Christian NoldData Miner UKInfinity ListVizualize.me Beta: Turning Your LinkedIn Resume in InfographicsThere seems to be a commercial market emerging around the idea of automizing the creation of infographics. Toronto based start-up vizualize.me [vizualize.me] 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. 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). While the idea seems certainly useful, one would certainly wish for the availability of more subdued visual styles, in particular for those people who appreciate more classical visual styles when applying for high-end, important jobs.
