MIT’s social computing group wants to initiate social change via data visualization at the rate of a map a day
http://adafru.it/diT

Fast Company has a great piece on the latest project from MIT’s social computing group.

The little things that make an otherwise cramped-and-concrete urban life worthwhile (green space, bike lanes, coffee shops) are exactly what the You Are Here project is about.

Over the next two and a half years, MIT Media Lab professor Sep Kamvar will lead a team of computer scientists, artists, architects, urban planners, designers, and educators to draw 10,000 maps–that’s 100 different cities, rendered 100 times each–in hopes of illuminating the details that make cities great. Or, in some cases, not so great.

“I realized that whenever I look at a map, it just tells me the streets and the buildings, and that’s such a small fraction of what actually makes up a city,” Kamvar says. “I wanted to make some maps to help people understand their cities better.”

Christmas will be coming very very early for some lucky folk this year :)
The results are in

A few weeks ago we revealed that we were seeking Explorers to help us shape the future of Glass. To do that, we asked people across Google+ and Twitter to tell us what they would do #ifihadglass . We could never have imagined such an enthusiastic response! There were so many creative, diverse, and (sometimes) crazy applications. We’ve certainly learned a lot through this whole process and it’s inspiring to hear how much passion there is for Glass. 

Now for the really exciting bit... we know you’ve all been waiting patiently, which is why we’re pleased to announce that the results are in. Over the next few days we’ll be sending out invitations to our Explorer Program through Google+ and Twitter. So, keep a lookout for tweets and G+ posts from @projectglass and +Project Glass  to see if you’ve been invited. 

We also want to call out that we received great applications from businesses. At the moment, our Explorer Program is only for individuals. However, we are working on connecting with businesses in other ways.

We’re thrilled to be expanding the Explorer Program and we cannot wait to meet our new Explorers.

Remember to follow us on Google+ and Twitter. If you want to learn more about Glass, sign up here to stay informed: www.google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one

how good are these?
My fave in this - no.10. How to fold a fitted sheet. Plenty of good ideas.

Love this idea from Croatia. Not sure Royal Mail will be doing this any time soon though.

this has been obvious for quite a while, but people (and most businesses) won't change habits individually...my bet is that change won't be brought about by governments/politicians setting the agenda, it'll be whichever smart supermarkets work out that this course of action will give them a long-term competitive advantage...
