VUE: mind mapping meets data visualization, semantic analysis, and presentation engine VUE (Visual Understanding Environment) is a free, open source mind mapping and data visualization software developed by the Academic Technology group at Tufts University in Boston. VUE is unique in that it offers a range of innovative functions such as tagging of nodes and of relationships, support for images, videos, and other objects within the mind map structure, and the ability to import and analyze datasets (from CSV files, XML files, and even RSS feeds) using semantic mapping. It also functions as an innovative Powerpoint-style presentation tool, allowing users to define “presentation pathways” on top of the mind map structure, and to create presentation-style content that is associated with the mapped concepts. VUE can also be used in conjunction with the Zotero Firefox extension to map out and visualize online documents and web clippings. VUE is also a full-fledged, Powerpoint-style presentation software. Here are more notes on this program: Version Tested: 3.0 beta4b2.

Is This The Best Way to Recognize the Artists of Famous Paintings? Is This The Best Way to Recognize the Artists of Famous Paintings? March 8, 2014 in Uncategorized If you haven’t studied art history, it can sometimes be a bit confronting walking around a museum or art gallery and trying to get your head around who painted what. So with this in mind, here’s a bit of a tongue-in-cheek guide as to how YOU can easily work out which artist painted what. Enjoy! If everyone in the paintings has enormous asses, then it’s Rubens. If all the men look like cow-eyed curly-haired women, it’s Caravaggio. If everybody has some sort of body malfunction, then it’s Picasso. If it’s something you saw on your acid trip last night, it’s Dali. If the images have a dark background and everyone has tortured expressions on their faces, it’s Titian. If the paintings have tons of little people in them but otherwise seem normal, it’s Bruegel. If everyone – including the women – looks like Putin, then it’s van Eyck. If everyone is beautiful, naked, and stacked, it’s Michelangelo.
