Mappiness, the happiness mapping app

Mappiness, the happiness mapping app

Mappiness iPhone App Maps Happiness (Say That Three Times Fast) Officially launching today is Mappiness, a UK iPhone app that “maps Happiness” by pinging users with a survey in order to plot out their feelings during the day (happiness, in this case, is apparently user-defined). Using LBS, the app links responses and response locations to environmental data in an attempt to, according to lead researcher George MacKerron, “better find answers on the impacts of natural beauty and environmental problems on individual and national well being.” MacKerron, based at the London School Economics, elaborated on the idea of tracking happiness, “In the 19th century economists imagined a ‘hedonometer,’ a perfect happiness gauge, and psychologists have more recently run small scale ‘experience sampling’ studies to see how mood varies with activity, time of day and so on.” Mappiness is the first project of its kind to add location to the mix. Now, thanks to the iPhone, we might get a better grasp on humanity’s happiness habits.

Bio Mapping vous Emmanuel Gadenne from Limeil Brévannes ? Le 2.0 s'étoffe avec le "quantified self" (QS) Quantified Self from Jean Michel Billaut on Vimeo. (pour ceux qui ne le savent pas, Limeil Brévannes se trouvent dans le Val-de-Marne - Par ailleurs Emmanuel a eu quelques soucis avec son ordinateur pendant l'interview... la première partie de ce e-billautshow s'est faite avec le dit ordinateur, et suite au problème, nous avons continué avec son iPhone, qui marche très bien pour la visio...mais ne soyez pas perturbé par le changement de dimension d'écran.) On croyait que la messe était dite.. Que les outils dits du 2.0 étaient là, et qu'il n'y en auraient pas d'autres... Emmanuel nous explique donc par le menu ce dont il s'agit. Pour quels objectifs ? Combien de sites dans le monde proposent des enregistrements divers ? Où en est-on dans le Monde avec ce QS ? "Cela essaime un peu partout.. un peu sur la monde des barcamps..." Celui de Paris aura lieu en Juin prochain. Les Français sont-ils prêts pour cela ? Les professionnels de santé sont-ils intéressés par ces façons de faire ?

Quantified Self | Self Knowledge Through Numbers Google Maps Mania Japanese artist maps 1945-1998's nuclear explosions A Japanese artist named Isao Hashimoto has created a series of works about nuclear weapons. One is titled "1945-1998" and shows a history of the world's nuclear explosions. Over the course of fourteen and a half minutes, every single one of the 2053 nuclear tests and explosions that took place between 1945 and 1998 are is plotted on a map. A metronomic beep every second represents months passing, and a different tone indicates explosions from different countries. After a couple of minutes or so, however, once the USSR and Britain entered the nuclear club, the tests really start to build up, reaching a peak of nearly 140 in 1962, and remaining well over 40 each year until the mid-80s. It's a compelling insight into the history of humanity's greatest destructive force, especially when you remember that only two nuclear explosions have ever been detonated offensively, both in 1945. Here's the video:
