This interview of Mariana Mazzucato on the INET blog is hugely important. We're all influenced by some ideas floating around about how the private sector is sleek and efficient, risk taking etc, while the public sector is slow and wasteful, and almost none of this is based on any sound thinking ...

Cool visualization!
Kevin Millikin originally shared:
 
Just discovered hipmunk.com. It's flight search with a very simple but cool way to visualize the options.

Flights can be sorted by agony, a combination of price, duration, and number of stops. I don't completely agree with the weight; especially when traveling with children, I'd gladly pay more to avoid a long layover or an extra one.

Actually, ITA has had something like this visualization for a while. Go to matrix.itasoftware.com and enter your search parameters. When you get your results, click "time bars" in the top right corner.

The "agony" metric does appear to be new to Hipmunk. At least, it isn't in this particular instance of prior work.

Google+ information density too low. Too much dog-gone whitespace.

It's interesting that you mentioned that. First reaction was that if you take into account the adds in FB, density is higher in G+. When I turned to FB to check this visually, it turned out that they had cut down on adds and the page that I was looking at was starting to look a lot like G+...

After police broke up the protests in Turkey's Taksim Square over the weekend, a new protest has sprung up — but this one is still and silent. A lone man stood motionless in the square for six hours overnight, and soon many others decided to join the "standing man."

Big win for G+: adding people to a circle with a single click. Genius! (cf FB "lists", which are such a pain).

G+ won't run in old versions of Firefox, like the one I have in Fedora 12.
