BBC Dimensions: How Many Really? – Blog – BERG
"One of the concepts was called ‘Dimensions’ – a set of tools that looked to juxtapose the size of things from history and the news with things you are familiar with – bringing them home to you.<br />
<br />
About a year ago, we launched the first public prototype from that thinking,, which overlaid the physical dimensions of news events such as the 2010 Pakistan Floods, or historic events such as the Apollo 11 moonwalks on where you lived or somewhere you were familiar with.<br />
<br />
It was a simple idea that proved pretty effective, with over half-a-million visitors in the past year, and a place in the MoMA Talk To Me exhibition.<br />
<br />
Today, we’re launching its sibling,"

Steve Jobs and the Rewards of Risk-Taking -
"The academics identify five traits that are common to the disruptive innovators: questioning, experimenting, observing, associating and networking. Their bundle of characteristics echoes the ceaseless curiosity and willingness to take risks noted by other experts. Networking, Mr. Gregersen explains, is less about career-building relationships than a search for new ideas. Associating, he adds, is the ability to make idea-producing connections by linking concepts from different disciplines — intellectual mash-ups."

"There's currently a whole chain of elements involved in building digital civic infrastructure for the public, & these are represented by various Stamen projects & others. At the moment, the current hodgepodge of bits—including APIs & official sources, scraped websites, sometimes-reusable data formats & datasets, visualizations, embeddable widgets etc—is fractured, overly technical & obscure, held in knowledge base of a relatively small number of people, & requires considerable expertise to harness. That is, unless you're willing to use generic tools like Google Maps, & agree to terms of service which allow them to share your content w/ other people. We want to change this. Visualizing city data shouldn't be this hard, proprietary, or generic.

So the first part of this project is to start from scratch, in a 'clean room' environment. We've started from a baseline that's really straightforward, tackling the simplest part: getting dots on maps, without legacy code or any baggage."

The Ecstasy of Influence (
"Today, when we can eat Tex-Mex with chopsticks while listening to reggae and watching a YouTube rebroadcast of the Berlin Wall's fall—i.e., when damn near everything presents itself as familiar—it's not a surprise that some of today's most ambitious art is going about trying to make the familiar strange. In so doing, in reimagining what human life might truly be like over there across the chasms of illusion, mediation, demographics, marketing, imago, and appearance, artists are paradoxically trying to restore what's taken for “real” to three whole dimensions, to reconstruct a univocally round world out of disparate streams of flat sights."
