An impressing shortlist again this year! All winners as it comes to making data understandable & thus usefull. Some great examples of storytelling with data as well. :)
It was no easy task, to hand-pick the best among so many great entries, but the shortlist for the 2015 Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards is finally live.

Stellar post from the +Carnegie Mellon University on Learning Analytic Ethics. At the one hand, educational institutions are obliged to increase the effectiveness of learning - so they can not NOT mine data. One the other hand, students must be able to opt out (or not opt in), and institutions should better protect student's privacy.
Data mining is a powerful tool being used by educational institutions to support student success, but often students do not know what data are being

Beautiful tale of how an old men deals with annoying (and un-understanding) smart things imposed upon him. As +Tine Peeters & +pieter lesage pointed out: they don't fix the root causes, but are just annoying reminders that these exists. #notificationhell

How to spot the 'lies' in badly made maps. (Or, well.. depending on how you read it it could also be how to make sure your visualization gets your point across .) Regardless, an interesting read on common-made map and data visualization mistakes. #dataliteracy #visualisation

I just ordered 68x68cm lambda print goat for my #ikeahack kitchen vitrine project.

Cabinet: Ikea
Paint: Chalkboard Matt (done, 3 layers)
Goat: Ordered (ordered)

Remaining: pick up goat, assembly, attach to wall

Below a quick mockup to test the crop on the goat. I'm so looking forward to the end result.

+Hans Vandeveire​ That's the benefit of finding a Greek goat & only taking its picture home. (Although the owner of the remote little tavern that came with the pot of herbs might have appreciated us taking the goat too :P)

Odd move from Reuters. It won't fix the 'cheating' issue, and it won't be much faster than RAW.
Reuters has banned its freelance photographers from submitting images that were shot and processed in their camera's RAW format, PetaPixel has confirmed. RAW is often used by pro and enthusiast...
David Q. Cohen (SpeedSkaterBoston)'s profile photo
Jpeg images are highly processed from "raw" sensor data by the camera in any case. But cropping is clearly a no-no by a news photographer. That's the editors job.

Where does our concept of 'being online/offline' come from? The etymology of the online/offline dichotomy goes back to being an indicator of whether or not a city, factory, or mine was accessible by a particular train line. What does that mean for our digital world? Sunday is such a great day to read up on First Mondays! ;) #cyberculture

I like how "let's take this offline" is still shorthand in a meeting or telecon for "let's discuss this afterwards" despite the fact that (a) you may not have been online during the meeting and (b) you are almost certainly going to be online when you discuss it. It's really from the days when "line" = "phone line".

Too good not to share. Patent war about applying haptic feedback in the .xxx domain. :p
Teledildonics startups are being sued by a patent troll, one of those profiteers who buy patents to extort money from technology companies. Now the open-source sex tech company +Comingle is crowdsourcing a list of prior art -- publicly available information that challenges the patent's claim to originality -- and the effort is laying before us many forgotten first steps in the realm of sexual innovation. In this video, Kirk Woolford and Stahl Stenslie chronicle remote sexual stimulation as made possible by 1993 technology:

"We do not believe the Hype." I can think of no better way to kick off the Internet of Things Design Manifesto. Focus on privacy, transparency, security and being useful. Anything you feel they left out of the #iotmanifesto  v1.0 that ought to be in there?

Ok, I know it's no excuse -- but .. I've been so quiet lately as I had tons of stuff to do out of the ordinary routine. One of them was preparing this Strata talk about Privacy and Personalisation seen from the bigger UX picture. I do hope you like it enough to forgive me! ;) 

#privacy   #UX  -- Thank you so much for having me, +O'Reilly Strata ! 
A talk about ux, trust and privacy - and how these are becoming increasing important in human-computer interaction. This connection we have with our smart-everythings, it is no longer merely about exchanging data back and forth. Our connection with computers now does revolve around values which we normally find in human-to-human relationships: understanding and trust. We humans expect that these machines do the computing effort to understand us; ...
