See these two houses? They’re both number 443 Manchester Road!

The one on the left is in Bolton, and the one on the right is in Manchester. They’re literally next door to each other!

Facebook Links Actual Store Visits to Marketer Ads and Sales | Digital - AdAge
The catch, though, is that advertisers may not be able to get a complete picture of everyone who went into their stores, because users have to opt in to location-tracking in Facebook's app in order for conversions to work.

cityofsound: Essay: On the smart city; Or, a 'manifesto' for smart citizens instead
Exactly what image does the phrase “government I.T. project” conjure up, after all? (By way of comparison, observe how the "start-up within the UK Cabinet Office", Government Digital Service, is laying waste to a previous generation of IT systems in a matter of months, creating elegant, simple and user-focused systems using the same agile methodologies and user-centred design that build the likes of Amazon and Twitter, and saving millions upon millions of pounds along the way. You cannot outsource this: it is strategic.

Archives & Open data | The HighWire
Open data & archives have been on my mind this week. Starting with a HighWire talk with the BBC we spoke of ‘perceptive media’, ‘object orientated media & production’ and ‘holodecks’ (kid you not). Here we spoke of the challenges and possibilities of opening and managing the now vast BBC archives. This was followed by tales of an adventure by RIG to HSBC archives, interesting finds from the banking sector and not at all what you would expect. Finally today, an open data workshop today with Julian Tate & Gerd Kortuem.

A map for every day (Phil Gyford’s website)
"This idea isn’t to highlight content that’s fascinating to other people — these date pages aren’t even particularly obvious on the site — but are a manifestation of aggregating whatever data I can about myself. Save it now as you don’t know what or when it will be interesting. Given that so many of us are constantly leaving footprints across so many loosely-joined online places I can’t help feeling it should be easier for people to (a) archive and save such data and (b) view it all in one place." Phil - best person on the internet. James - best person IRL.

Is the release of Coins the end of the data war? | Comment is free |
"Well, we asked for it. At 9.30 this morning, the coalition finally released what could be one of the world's biggest government databases. The Combined Online Information System – known universally as Coins – is the most detailed record of public spending imaginable. Some 24m individual spending items in a CSV file of 120GB presents a unique picture of how the government does its business." - all thanks to Tom Taylor and the Lib Dems. Basically.

'OK, let's do it': How Britain's official data was freed | Technology |
A "hack day" at the Guardian's offices in October 2009 produced a "postcode paper" that drew together all the local information about a particular postcode as an illustration of how powerful data could be, though the paper itself pointed out that the principal barriers to anyone being able to use it were the cost of postcode data, and the licensing costs for Ordnance Survey maps.

Germany's 'Niiu' Newspaper Enters Troubled Industry - TIME

"Which is, to go off at a tangent, in essence one of the big problems with Digital Britain. The theory goes that The Royal Mail and Ordnance Survey have too much locked up in their data, they’d have to say something like “I know, we’ll unlock all our data, that’ll cause us to instantly wipe £350 million [made up big number] off our spreadsheets”.

BBC NEWS | Magazine | A good runner, but not great
What's striking is the strange disappearance of good runners. That's good runners, rather than great - those who are far better than most, but not world-class, the kind who would impress at club level.

In 1982, a time of two hours 40 minutes would have placed you 457th. Last year, it would have been good enough for 184th - this despite the huge increase in competitors.

Getting Past the Pie Chart § SEEDMAGAZINE.COM
"While modern designers keep inventing more and more creative visualizations, the true frontiers this year may be much more modest — learning the limitations of graphics, and using perception-informed design and interactive techniques to make the most of the forms that already exist. The pie chart, which has borne the scorn of perceptual psychologists for decades, may fail in some respects, but modern visualization has in many ways failed to learn from its mistakes. Above all, we should remember that throwing data into a chart is not always the route to greater understanding. Says Spence: “There is a place for tables in the world.” "
