Yup. Facebook is the only major site that I use that significantly degrades functionality if flash isn't installed. Does anyone know why they don't fall back on HTML5 video for those of us who have removed flash?

I'm glad to see google going on the offensive on this...
Movie industry lobbyists at the MPAA are trying to resurrect SOPA-style web censorship via a back door. Let's defeat online censorship again. Tell the MPAA to kill the #ZombieSOPA. https://takeaction.withgoogle.com/g-stop-mpaa

Algorithms are a fascinating use case for visualization. To visualize an algorithm, we don't merely fit data to a chart; there is no primary dataset. Instead there are logical rules that describe behavior. This may be why algorithm visualizations are so unusual, as designers experiment with ...
