  • More LinkedIn Visualizations

    A couple more visualizations that use the LinkedIn API that I missed on the previous post. LinkedIn Maps announced yesterday creates a poster-ready view of your LinkedIn network complete with color-coding showing how everyone is related. This type of visualization can reveal interesting things about your career. In my case, it looks like my colleagues […]

    Just re-discovered Dipity which was a cool tool for creating timelines. They now have jumped onto the lifestreaming bandwagon and provide a way to publish and share a portion of your lifestream in a visual way.

I found myself wanting for a school district map overlayed on top of a map showing available placed to live. I’ve found pieces of the puzzle: SF School District Map greatschools.org SF Zip […]

  • ugoff.com

    Boing Boing points to another mini-site put up by the Miami-based ad agency behind Subservient Chicken. These guys are re-writing the rules of Western advertising with their deconstructionalist, tongue-in-cheek dig at stereotypes and creative use of new and old media to position their clients’ products.
