40 must-see vídeos 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. And we say risk, because the abundance of data visualization videos on the Internet is simply mind-blowing. Just think about it: How many events are there about information visualization? That means that a lot of good stuff was left behind, so apologies for that – but feel free to leave your recommendations in the comments section. [Update: We are receiving some great suggestions of other videos worth watching, so we'll keep growing this list. Journalism in the Age of Data The famous video by Geoff McGhee.

OneSwarm : du P2P au F2F pour une vie privée renforcée - PC INpa Une équipe de chercheurs de l’Université de Washington développe actuellement un client d’échange de fichier nommé OneSwarm. Il est rétrocompatible Bittorrent, mais possède surtout une panoplie d’outils F2F ou Friend to Friend (ami à ami) permettant d’échanger loin des yeux et du cœur de systèmes surveillés. « Bien que largement utilisées, les applications peer-to-peer (P2P) sont limitées par des risques d’atteinte au respect de la vie privée des utilisateurs. Par conception, les services comme BitTorrent, Gnutella partagent des données avec tous ceux qui en font la demande, permettant à une tierce partie de suivre systématiquement le comportement de l'utilisateur. « OneSwarm ne sait protéger la vie privée de l’utilisateur qu’avec l’option F2F » précisent les concepteurs de la solution qui prennent soin cependant de préciser à plusieurs reprises que l’anonymat absolu n’est jamais possible.
D3.js World Map of Social Networks January 2017: a new edition of my World Map of Social Networks, showing the most popular social networking sites by country, according to Alexa & SimilarWeb traffic data (caveat: it’s hard to understand the impact of Google+ because it is part of Google domain traffic). There are a lot of news since last January: Facebook is still the leading social network in 119 out of 149 countries analyzed, but it was stopped in 9 territories by Odnoklassniki, Vkontakte and Linkedin. It’s interesting to see that in some countries, like Botwana, Mozambique, Namibia, Iran e Indonesia, Instagram wins and that some African territories prefer LinkedIn. Overall LinkedIn conquers 9 countries, Instagram 7, meanwhile VKontakte and Odnoklassniki (part of the same group Mail.ru) grow up in Russian territories. In China QZone still dominates the Asian landscape with 632 million users and Japan is the only country where Twitter is the leader. But what’s going on behind the first place? inShare1,047 inShare1,047
37 Data-ish Blogs You might not know it, but there are actually a ton of data and visualization blogs out there.
