Climbing Mount Everest

A colleague and I have both been researching Mount Everest Base Camp treks lately. Mount Everest, or Sagarmāthā in Nepali, is the tallest mountain on earth. With a peak at  8,848 m (~29,000 feet) its top is further away from sea level than any other place on earth. That’s all well and good, of course. But exactly how […]

Visualising Tweets About Global Issues

I finally found a good excuse to play around with RAW (made by the amazing people from Density Design). I have tried a few times before, but it quickly showed that I had too much data. Wanting to do stuff with a lot of data in a browser is really not such a good idea, but […]

Hashtag Musings

I read a lot of tweets. No, really. A lot. No no no, you don’t hear me properly. Really. A. Lot. Not that I ever get to read the avalanche of tweets entering my stream, although I do go through it cursory somewhat daily. I even occasionally write something myself. But mainly, I analyse tweets. […]

China Explained

If you have any interest in the history and politics of China (you should), the Reuters Connected China app is absolutely amazing. It’s basically a bunch of very well-annotated interactive data visualizations combined with a beautiful China 101. Divided into 5 areas, the social power visualization is particularly interesting, and it is easy to see […]

Jeg arbejdede der i 5 måneder, men fik aldrig skrevet om det. Nu arbejder jeg i stedet som “Big Data […]

Taxonomy Exploration with Infomous

So, I’m working on a social media data mining project with UN Global Pulse about the Post-2015 process, and wanted a quick look at regularly used words in combination with the debate taking place. The project I’m working on is basically a supplement to the global survey taking place now called MY World (please do participate), […]

Going to Data Visualization School

With the never-ending expansion of online possibilities for quality learning, I got to the can’t-see-the-woods-for-trees phase quite a while ago and tend to forget about some of the high quality stuff out there. Hence, I wanted to get some sort of overview of the possibilities I needed to look into. That used to be an […]

Udviklingsnyheder

Jeg abonnerer på en del udviklingsnyheder. De fleste via feeds direkte ind i Google Reader og dermed også ind i tre af mine absolutte yndlings-apps, Feedly (web+iPad+Android), Flipboard (iPad+Android) og Reeder (Mac+iPad). Og selvfølgelig via Twitter, hvor jeg – udover at følge en del – også har lavet to lister, Aid & Development og UN. Men […]
