  2. BBC - Podcasts - Secret History of Social Networking

    It's a phenomenon which seems to have come from nowhere, but in fact computer-based social networks have been around for decades. In this three-part series the BBC's technology correspondent Rory Cellan Jones traces the hidden story of social networking, from the early days of computing and the 60s counterculture through to the businesses worth billions today. From their roots in utopian experiments in California, online social networks spread around the world. In the past few years companies such as Facebook and Twitter have captivated millions of users. But what will be the next big thing in social networking, and how is it changing our lives? This series was originally broadcast in three weekly parts from 26 January 2011.

  3. The Personal Data Revolution

    It’s possible for the average person to collect and analyze unprecedented amounts of data about themselves. What was once the province of extreme athletes and dieters has been democratized and the resulting movement is called 'The Quantified Self.' Brooke speaks with Gary Wolf, who coined the term, a number of self-quantifiers, and MIT professor Deb Roy about what all this personal data really tells us about ourselves.

  4. Interview: Ben Burtt and J.W. Rinzler - ‘The Sounds of Star Wars’ : NPR

    It takes only a few seconds of sound — a spaceship launching, the familiar clash of lightsabers — to know that you are positively not in Kansas anymore. These are the sounds of Star Wars — from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, three-dimensional in a way that envelops you and that has changed the way movie soundtracks get assembled.

    Now the most celebrated of these sounds have been collected for a new book-and-audio collection, The Sounds of Star Wars, written by J.W. Rinzler and including a foreword by the architect of that audioscape himself: renowned sound designer Ben Burtt.

  5. Tomas Caspers: Die Heisenberg’sche Unschärferelation oder was Webdesign mit Quantenphysik zu tun hat

    Caspers zeigt am Beispiel von Katzencontent, dass Webseiten gleichzeit sehr tot und sehr lebendig sein können und erklärt, wie dunkle Materie die Ausbreitung des Webs beschleunigt. Er argumentiert gegen eine vereinheitlichte Feldtheorie des Webdesigns, da diese die Gravitationskräfte, die schlechte Webauftritte auf Besucher ausüben, nicht ausreichend erklären kann.

  6. Christian Heilmann: Panta rhei – das Netz ändert sich, warum nicht wir?

    πάντα χωρεῖ καὶ οὐδὲν μένει – alles ändert sich und nichts bleibt wie es war, das meinten schon Heraclitus und Plato. Wenn es ums Internet und Barrierefreiheit geht scheint es aber doch so zu sein das kaum Bewegung statt findet. Da nur in der Bewegung Kraft liegt ist ist es auch kaum verwunderlich das Barrierefreiheit nicht Innovation vorantreibt. Das kann auch anders gehen und in diesem Vortrag zeigt Christian Heilmann ein paar Beispiele wie man auch als Nicht-Techniker der Welt zeigen kann wie man Barrieren im Netz umgeht oder sogar ausschaltet. Das Netz der Seiten ist tot, und das Netz der Daten besteht aus Bausteinen die man wie Lego so zusammenstellen kann wie man es braucht oder toll findet.

  7. Information Is Beautiful

    In an age of high-speed living and info overload, visualized information has incredible potential to help us quickly understand, navigate and find meaning in a complex world.

    The use of infographics, data visualisations and information design is a rising trend across many disciplines: science, design, journalism and web. At the same time, daily exposure to the web is creating a incredibly design-literate population. Could this be a new language?

    In his session, David will share his passion for this merging of design, information, text and story to unveil some of the interesting, unexpected and sometimes magical things that happen when you visualise data, knowledge and ideas. And, admitting that his book is as full of mistakes as it is successes, he’ll also explore some of the common pitfalls, traps and FAILS that dog this young design form.

    Using examples from his book and blog, he’ll share thoughts on what makes a successful information visualisation and journalistic tips, especially for designers, on how to zero in on interesting data and subjects—and how designing information can expose your own biases and change your views about the world. Oh yeah!


    David McCandless is a London-based author, data-journalist and information designer, working across print, advertising, TV and web. His design work has appeared in over forty publications internationally including The Guardian and Wired. He champions the use of data visualisations to explore new directions for journalism and to discover new stories in the seas of data surrounding us. His blog and book ‘Information Is Beautiful’ are dedicated to visualising ideas, issues, knowledge and data—all with the minimum of text.
