Somos Anonymous · ELPAÍ Este es su lema: "Somos una legión, no perdonamos, no olvidamos, espéranos. Anonymous". Así es como cierra sus anuncios y comunicados este movimiento sin líderes y sin portavoces, con voz, pero sin cara. En Anonymous sería imposible que se produjera un infiltrado, aseguran, porque no hay líderes "La mayor parte de los 'anonymous' no son 'hackers', son usuarios de Internet como cualquiera", dice uno Todo apunta a que sus miembros consideran más que superada la vieja dialéctica izquierda-derecha En España, Anonymous cuenta con una base de entre 1000 y 2000 personas, con distinto nivel de compromiso Anonymous está en su momento. Woolwich, a 45 minutos del centro de Londres, exteriores de la Real Corte de Justicia. Magnonymous es uno más, no es portavoz de nadie, y menos de un movimiento que no quiere portavoces, como se apresuran a decir todos los miembros de Anonymous apenas empiezan a hablar con un periodista. No todos los miembros de Anonymous son hackers, no. Pregunta. Respuesta. . P. R.

history flow In the Visualization and Behavior Group we take the perspective that data visualization should make data analytics accessible to anyone, not just the data's experts. We also believe that using social software for communication is the new norm, not a trend. We ask questions related to this world where people communicate through social media and gain insight into their world with data visualization. Our group builds innovative visual interfaces, designs novel user experiences for exploring analytics, and analyzes users' behavior in terms of motivations, incentives, and cultural influences. Some questions that keep us up at night: What does it take to trust the results shown in a visualization? Previous Projects

Connect the Dots | STEM CAMP But first, they must embrace science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to build the skills that will serve as their tool set for the future. For that to happen, we must work together to ignite their curiosity and get them excited about STEM in their everyday lives. So we ask you to join us in connecting the dots between learning and life. Together, we can ignite the spark in students around the clock and around the world. While after-school learning and summer programs provide rich opportunities to keep students inspired beyond the classroom, we know that unequal access to these programs can contribute to disparities in student achievement. STEM Camp combines hands-on labs, engineering challenges, digital investigations, and more - all designed to immerse kids in the grand challenges of science set forth by the National Academy of Engineering.

Journal of Information Architecture How a Science Journalist Created a Data Visualization to Show the Magnitude of the Haiti Earthquake On the one year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake, journalist Peter Aldhous created a data visualization that shows how the Carribean country's relatively low seismic earthquake had as many fatalities as all but one earthquake over a time span of almost 40 years. The data visualization is striking but also a study in how journalists are increasingly telling stories that leverage datasets that are freely available to the public. Peter Aldhous, San Francisco Bureau Chief for New Scientist magazine, created the interactive graphics. We asked him to explain how he created the visualizations which compare seismic activity to fatalities caused by earthquakes over the span of four decades. Aldhous posted the data visualizations on his Web site with the following explanation: The earthquake that struck near the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, on 12 January 2010, was unremarkable in seismic terms -- barely making the year's top 20 most powerful quakes. The bar graph marks fatalities. The Results

Open textbook An open textbook is a textbook licensed under an open copyright license, and made available online to be freely used by students, teachers and members of the public. Many open textbooks are distributed in either print, e-book, or audio formats that may be downloaded or purchased at little or no cost.[1] Part of the broader open educational resources movement,[2][3] open textbooks increasingly are seen as a solution to challenges with traditionally published textbooks, such as access and affordability concerns.[4] Open textbooks were identified in the New Media Consortium's 2010 Horizon Report as a component of the rapidly progressing adoption of open content in higher education.[5] Usage rights[edit] The defining difference between open textbooks and traditional textbooks is that the copyright permissions on open textbooks allow the public to freely use, adapt and distribute the material. Open licenses[edit] Some examples of open licenses are: Affordability[edit] Higher education[edit]

About The third is community. We believe learning should be as rich and varied as the world you're learning about. So with our community we're building a kind of multimedia wonderland of learning, where videos, audio, usage, mnemonics, etymologies and much more bring your learning to life. We believe that every learner is partly a teacher, and we hope that once you get started, you'll soon be supplying little nuggets of wit and wisdom to help the rest of the community as they learn! Anyone can learn anything We believe that learning’s quite simple, and that there’s nothing that can’t be learned with the right help and enthusiasm. Together we are smarter Millions of people have learned what you want to learn. As you learn, you share your ideas to help others, just as you benefit all the time from the ideas other people have shared. This way, we all learn quicker and more effortlessly. Play works We’re at our most receptive when we’re at play. Your memory is a garden, not a storehouse
