What Killed The Infographic? A few years ago, the Internet was awash in groundbreaking data visualizations. There was Aaron Koblin's deeply influential map of flight patterns around the U.S. Periscopic's exhaustive, haunting portrait of gun violence in the United States. Jer Thorp and John Underkoffler's Minority Report-like interface for exploring the galaxy. The Opte Project Here you will find static and dynamic 2D JPG/PNG images and 3D VRML maps of the Internet. These maps are built off of our database using two different graphing engines: Large Graph Layout (LGL) by Alex Adai and Graphviz by Peter North at AT&T Labs Research. Each graphing engine produces wonderful displays, but they are only as good as the data and graphing language we provide. You can find our test images and some well produced full Internet maps below. Soon we will release the tools to create these maps on your own.

Built with Sometimes a GIF Is All You Need Today and yesterday were glorious days in New York: August had come, the sun was shining, the weather was just right. They were the type of days that make you want to frolic, or skip or swing. And so it happened, when I clicked on a link in a tweet by pioneering net artist and critic Olia Lialina, that I saw her swinging joyfully towards me in my browser. This, I thought, is the perfect expression of summer. Lialina’s piece “Summer” is a GIF, and at first glance, a fairly simple one: it features an image of the artist swinging to and fro against a blank background that bleeds from bright blue to white. She wears a summery outfit, with her loose hair puffing out as she moves and a slight smile on her face.
Everything Science Knows About Reading On Screens Thanks to technology, we’re reading more than ever—our brains process thousands of words via text messages, email, games, social media, and web stories. According to one report, the amount people that read tripled from 1980 to the late 2000s, and it’s probably safe to say that trend continues today. But as we jam more and more words into our heads, how we read those words has changed in a fundamental way: we’ve moved from paper to screens. It’s left many wondering what we’ve lost (or gained) in the shift, and a handful of scientists are trying to figure out the answer.

UFC Fighter Ronda Rousey Has Physics-Based Superpowers On August 1, Ronda Rousey defeated Bethe Corriea in a UFC bantamweight match in a scathing, fleeting 34 seconds. But how awesome is Rousey, really? Was 34 Seconds Too Short? If you watched the Rousey-Corriea fight on pay per view, then you might think 34 seconds was too short.
