30/10/10 We see a lot of metrics on web and mobile apps. Our portfolio companies share their metrics with us, which we keep confidential and do not share with anyone outside of our firm. And companies that are seeking investment from USV also share their metrics with us. 40 must-see videos about data visualization and infographics Our selection of keynotes, TED Talks and interviews by some of the top names in the field (The Joy of Stats, by Hans Rolling, one of the must-see videos) After the success of our collection of data visualization presentations a few weeks ago, we decided to push even further our research of multimedia resources and take the risk of selecting some videos.

Powered by Translate Slavery Footprint The 100 Best, Most Interesting Blogs and Websites of 2012 (Categorized) Editor’s note: 2015’s list of the best, most interesting websites has arrived! I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly running into so many cool websites I want to remember or recommend to people but I don’t always have time to make a note of them, add them to Evernote, bookmark them in Delicious, etc. So this is a good example of a post I created as a personal (and completely unscientific) resource that other people will probably benefit from as well. Some of these sites are pretty new while others have been around for a while now, but they are all awesome right now in 2012.
Statistiche download di Firefox 4 – June 14, 2011Posted in: Archived, Retired We launched the first version of glow.mozilla.org with the Firefox 4 release in March 2011 as a way to visualize Firefox downloads and community involvement around the world. Thanks to the development skill of Matthew Claypotch and Jeff Balogh, and the design talents of Sean Martell, it was a great success, with more than 1.2 million unique visitors and frequent press mentions. (It was also a pretty nifty demo of some of the best open technology the modern web has to offer.)

Mapping Stereotypes Project by alphadesigner Atlas of Prejudice: The Complete Stereotype Map Collection Get your copy on: Amazon US / Amazon UK / Amazon DE / Amazon FR / Amazon IT / Amazon ES / Amazon Canada / Amazon Japan / Amazon India / Amazon Brazil Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research We study the structure and dynamics of Web traffic networks based on data from HTTP requests made by users at Indiana University. Gathering anonymized requests directly from the network rather than relying on server logs and browser instrumentation allows us to examine large volumes of traffic data while minimizing biases associated with other data sources. It also gives us valuable referrer information that we can use to reconstruct the subset of the Web graph actually traversed by users. Our Web traffic (click) dataset is available! Our goal is to develop a better understanding of user behavior online and creating more realistic models of Web traffic. The potential applications of this analysis include improved designs for networks, sites, and server software; more accurate forecasting of traffic trends; classification of sites based on the patterns of activity they inspire; and improved ranking algorithms for search results.
