Artsology Click and drag your mouse on the canvas to create different colored rectangular shapes and create a geometric abstract "painting." Each time you make a new geometric shape, a random color combination will appear, so no two paintings will ever be the same. Experiment with different designs, whether you overlap them or keep them separate. If you come up with something you really like, take a screen shot and send it to us and we'll start a geometric art gallery.
Protovis Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction.

Building a Spotify App On Wednesday November 30, Spotify announced their Spotify Apps platform that will let developers create Spotify-powered music apps that run inside the Spotify App. I like Spotify and I like writing music apps so I thought I would spend a little time kicking the tires and write about my experience. First thing, the Spotify Apps are not part of the official Spotify client, so you need to get the Spotify Apps Preview Version. This version works just like the version of Spotify except that it includes an APPS section in the left-hand navigator. If you click on the App Finder you are presented with a dozen or so Spotify Apps including Last.fm, Rolling Stones, We are Hunted and Pitchfork.
Cubism.js Time Series Visualization foo7.6 bar−6.2 Adaptive Images Limitations I think this is one of the most flexible, future-proof, retro-fittable, and easy to use solutions available today. But, there are problems with this approach as there are with all of the one’s I’ve seen so far. In the case of Adaptive Images they are these: This is a PHP solution. I wish I was smarter and knew some fancy modern languages the cool kids discuss at parties, but I don’t. colony Colony is a neat little visualisation tool for exploring Node projects and their dependencies using d3.js. Each file is represented as a node in the graph. If one file depends on another, a link is made between the two files. Each file is coloured based on the module they belong to. By hovering over a node, you can see the file's name, the files it depends on (light), and the files that depend on it (dark).
