Someone made a map of the world’s wind. It’s weirdly fun to play around with.

There is room for kindness in the animal kingdom, and for helping others, but only when there are hidden benefits to the giver

Winning would definitely be a lot easier, if the other team weren't so intent on getting in the way (lol)!

"Culture spreads through people, but how does that really happen? This data visualisation charts the movement of 120,000 prominent cultural figures – predominantly European and North American – between 600 BC and 2012 CE, by plotting lines between where each one was born and died."

Culture spreads through people, but how does that really happen? This data visualisation from Nature Video charts the movement of 120,000 prominent cultural figures – predominantly European and North American – between 600 BC and 2012 CE, by plotting lines between where each one was born and died. While limited by its Eurocentrism – reflecting history as written by the victors – the visualisation proves to be an interesting tool for reimagining h...

Wow. Just. You know when someone makes something that you'd always wished existed... and then you see it and it's more amazing than you imagined. <mindgasm>

Thank you wonderful data scientists!

The utterly delightful, slickly-designed app is sort of like musical Legos.

The brain essentially gambles on the subset of information it has. Based on a small sliver of sensory information, it bets on what the world is telling it in order to get the best payoff behaviorally.

This Bergson extract came to mind for some reason:

A man born blind, who had lived among others born blind, could not be made to believe in the possibility of perceiving a distant object without first perceiving all the objects in between. Yet vision performs this miracle. In a certain sense the blind man is right, since vision, having its origin in the stimulation of the retina, by the vibrations of the light, is nothing else, in fact, but a retinal touch. Such is indeed the scientific explanation, for the function of science is just to
express all perceptions in terms of touch. But we have shown elsewhere that the philosophical explanation of perception (if it may still be called an explanation) must be of another kind. Now instinct also is a knowledge at a distance. It has the same relation to intelligence that vision has to touch. Science cannot do otherwise than express it in terms of intelligence; but in so doing it constructs an imitation of instinct rather than penetrates within it.

Nothing special but Sweden has lots and lots of immigrants from Europe. English itself is very common in Sweden, so there might be no real need to learn the language. I wonder about Denmark and especially Norway, because their knowledge of the english language is, compared to other not english speaking countries, very good.
