One Chart, Twelve Tools · Lisa Charlotte Rost 17 May 2016 Which tool or charting framework do you use to visualize data? Everybody I’ve met so far has personal preferences (“I got introduced to data vis with that tool!”, “My hero uses that tool and she makes the best charts!”). Often we keep working with the first not-entirely-bad tool or language that we encountered. Cryptocurrency + WikiLeaks = Big concerns Another activity was recently measured, and that measurement clearly illustrates the increase in the degree of difficulty addressing the theft and distribution of stolen information assets. The recent measurement was the magnitude of bitcoin donations to WikiLeaks!

Caravel: Airbnb’s data exploration platform — Airbnb Engineering & Data Science At Airbnb, we love data, and we like to think that analytics belongs everywhere. For us to be data-driven, we need data to be fluid, fast flowing, and crystal clear. As a vector for data exploration, discovery, and collaborative analytics, we have built and are now open sourcing, a data exploration and dashboarding platform named Caravel. Caravel allows data exploration through rich visualizations while performing fast and intuitive “slicing and dicing” against just about any dataset.
Cryptocurrencies — a growing issue for military, intel agencies and law enforcement If you have not heard of or understand cryptocurrencies, you are not alone; but that had better change. Cryptocurrencies — a technology whose time seems to have come — has grown significantly as of late. The total dollar value of all cryptocurrencies exceed the gross domestic product of all but 84 countries in the world, according to the CIA World Factbook. That means the total value of all cryptocurrencies exceed the GDP of 145 individual countries, based on the CIA World Factbook!
The Evolution of Web Search:From Real-Time Discovery to Collaborative Web Search - HeyStaks Certainly the world of the Web has changed dramatically since 2000, and search engine technology has evolved through a variety of phases. For example, in the pre-Google dawn (Search 1.0), search engines were guided primarily by the words in a page, their location and how they matched the query terms. Google’s great innovation was to demonstrate how search quality could be greatly enhanced by harnessing a new relevance signal: the links between pages. Google’s link analysis technology (PageRank) interpreted links to a page as votes and PageRank was a clever way of counting such votes to effectively compute an authority score for each page, which could then be used during result ranking.As an aside, back in the late 1990’s one of Google’s fellow innovators was a company called Direct Hit, which also argued for the need for new relevance signals.
