  2. Webstock ‘14: Erika Hall - Beyond Measure

    Site analytics. The quantified self. Big data. We can track, measure, and store more than ever before. This is naturally exciting to designers and technologists who want to make better informed decisions. But more data doesn’t necessarily create more meaning, and might even make it harder to see what matters. Human experience does not reduce to an engineering problem and what we can’t count still counts in an increasingly quantified world.

  4. Data Journalism - On The Media

    The immense amounts of data collected by local, state and federal government agencies can be an incredibly valuable trove for enterprising journalists. It can also be a pointless slog. Texas Tribune reporter Matt Stiles and Duke University computational journalism professor Sarah Cohen explain how they find good stories in a sea of government data.

  5. The Digital Life - Episode 54 - Design is Medicine

    Healthcare is deadly. As patients and clinicians, we have long passed the threshold of comprehension when it comes to the amount of data and variables that support life-critical decisions. The system needs to be redesigned and re-imagined. True change comes from establishing a vision for healthcare that will modernize how doctors and patients interact with their health data to quantified and measurable medicine.

    In this episode of The Digital Life, we discuss the idea that “Design is Medicine,” with Involution Studios Creative Director, Juhan Sonin. In his health design practice, Sonin explores how linear-thinking human beings can interpret non-linear, unbalanced health metrics, and how healthcare can be saved through coordination, presentation and design.

    Join us as we look at the design, data, and policy challenges, as well as the scary new ideas being invented to solve them, that makes tackling the healthcare problem daunting and exciting.
