The danger of using the wrong metrics for policy making Adopted public policies affect everyone—They're called public for a reason after all. Nowhere is this truer than in the realm of defense policy. On the one hand, money spent on the military means money not spent on healthcare, education, infrastructure, or other important domestic spending priorities.

ID covers a broad range of fields, from product and furniture explorations to design for aerospace and medical applications.

untitled I was toying around with the idea of multivariate beer, along the same lines as Data Cuisine. I wanted to represent county demographics with beer ingredients. The higher a value, say, population density, the more hops I use, or the higher the median household income the more of a particular grain. For contrast I brewed county ales for Aroostook, Maine (low population density), Arlington, Virginia (high median household income), Bronx, New York (high population density), and Marin, California (high education rate). Could I taste and see the difference? In short, yes. Akten - Personal projects, artworks, research and collaborations - Reincarnation Audio-visual installation 1ch HD video, 2ch sound Duration: 04:27 Dimensions: variable Created with custom software tracking the motion of the dancers and generating these visuals, abstract layers containing subtle hints of human forms and motion. When the clip starts, you probably won’t recognize a human shape at first, but your eyes and mind will be searching, seeking mental connections between abstract shapes and recognizable patterns, like looking for shapes in clouds.

I think it is an important and timely topic to discuss. Mona Chalabi (photo, right) published an article in The Guardian back in April. She was responding to a question she received via her e-mail regarding “How would someone go about checking wage gaps? How can you check for gaps across genders and across racial/ethnic groups?”
