Getting beyond hello world with d3
About a year ago I proposed a very simple template to start working with d3. But is that the way I actually work? Of course not. Because, though you and I know that displaying hello world in d3 is not exactly trivial, this is not a highly marketable skill either. That said, I just can’t afford to start each of my projects from scratch.

Kill Math
We are no longer constrained by pencil and paper. The symbolic shuffle should no longer be taken for granted as the fundamental mechanism for understanding quantity and change. Math needs a new interface.

The New Coder: A Path to Software Engineering — Lynn Root
If the influx of private, independent schools for learning how to code is any indication, the ever-growing list of moocs, or the financial smack in the face is a tell-tale sign: software engineering as a career is having its 15 minutes of fame. Looking at the pace of its overall growth in terms of jobs and earnings, it’s not too far from Moore's Law. But in the context of history, software engineering is merely just going through its industrial phase compared to other engineering fields. There’s no revolutionary way to build a bridge or a highway; we’ve perfected the assembly line; making a guitar or violin is now more of an art than a science.

The 30 data viz blogs you can't miss - in one place | Visual Loop
There are literally hundreds of interesting blogs out there, covering all the aspects surrounding the production of quality, effective data visualizations. Interesting projects, like Santiago Ortiz’ ‘Data visualization references network, or Moritz Stefaner’s Viziosphere give a pretty good idea of how vast and rich the data visualization community is. Others like Francesco Franchi or Alberto Cairo have their sets of references publicly available, not to mention, of course, each an every blogroll that even the most simple blog keeps with their recommended links.

The Perfect Visualization | eagereyes
There are many rules about how to visualize data. We know how to encode specific types of data, what visual encodings work well, and what does not work so well. But is there such a thing as a perfect visualization for a given set of data?

UX is not UI | Hello Erik - User Experience @Erik_UX
UX has become a neologism. When something has “good UX” it is an implied meaning of having the core components of UX (research, maybe a persona, IA, interaction, interface, etc etc…). It’s not really necessary or desirable to tack the word design onto the end anymore. It’s a distraction and leads people down a parallel but misguided path… the path to thinking that UX = User Interface Design.

Set Faber to Stun (Ace Jet 170)
A great atlas is a treasury of mapperisms. The uninterested might expect the majority of the cartography within to be fairly monotonous but the modest cover of a truly great atlas hides a plethora of variation.

Mountain Lion’s New File System | Information Architects
Apple has been working on its file system and with iOS it had almost killed the concept of folders — before reintroducing them with a peculiar restriction: only one level! With Mountain Lion it brings its one folder level logic to OSX. What could be the reason for such a restrictive measure?

No to NoUI – Timo Arnall
‘The best design is invisible’ is the interaction design phrase of the moment. The images above are from my ever-expanding collection of quotes about how design and technology will ‘disappear’, become ‘invisible’ or how the ‘best interface is no interface’.
