Kind of busy last week, with no immediate end in sight. So real quick in case you haven’t heard, chimpanzees are hunting with spears …

… a future is imagined where heart transplants are exchanged with wedding vows in place of rings, grafting between lovers their fears, passions, quirks, graces, dreams and insecurities …

… Yahoo!, et al are pushing eco-friendly CFL lightbulbs with a fancy new website …

… and Joanna Newsom (& touring band) will be releasing a new EP in April …

That’s what caught my brain anyway. Be well.

Ecocardiocartography



Pictured above is the UK’s ecological footprint graphed using a method devised by Stanford researchers that simplifies flow into a hierarchical structure analogous to an organic cardiovascular system.

Our techniques are inspired by graph layout algorithms that minimize edge crossings and distort node positions while maintaining their relative position to one another. We demonstrate our technique by producing flow maps for network traffic, census data, and trade data.

Reactable

Reactable has come a ways since I last saw it a couple years ago – from something that seemed a little pale in comparison to other analogous systems like Audiopad, to something now seriously dripping in delicious synaesthetic badassery. High-ish res videos available on their website.
