Earth At Night


This satellite photo from NASA spans a 24-hour period showing the entire surface of the Earth in darkness. The lights obviously show the highest areas of concentration of civilization.

Note the Nile River delta, the Siberian Express railway route, the Australian coastal cities, and Africa, literally "the dark continent".
From Princeton's International Networks Archive, the old project of Jonathan Harris.

The Wealthiest Americans Ever


From the NYTimes in July 2007, an interactive infographic ranking the Wealthiest Americans after you convert their fortunes to today's dollars using the relative share of G.D.P.

Scrolling your pointer over the photos or the fortune amount shows more detail of the individual. Lots of black & white portraits! Only current rich folk Bill Gates and Warren Buffet made the list with color portraits.

The Cosmic Calendar


This last December was the 10th anniversary of Carl Sagan's death. One of his most popular episodes of Cosmos was titled The Dragons of Eden where he first described his Cosmic Calendar. This website from discovery.com has a simple image showing the Cosmic Calendar as Carl described it. A few websites are selling posters of the Cosmic Calendar, like AllPosters.com.

The premise is that if you compress the entire history of the universe into a calendar year, homo sapiens only exist in the last 6 minutes, and the last second represents the last 400+ years of human history.

You can see Cosmos, and hear Carl describe it on YouTube here:

World Clock Counter


You've seen these counters on highway billboards and other websites before. The World Clock from poodwaddle.com combines many of these counters together into one dashboard.

I've added a smaller version to the bottom of the right pane here on on the blog.

Katrina's Blame Game


Following the Katrina Diaspora graphic, here's another one related to Hurricane Katrina that maps the blame from different key figures and celebrities. I found this on mylifestream.net and originally from nytimes.com in October 2005.

Katrina's Diaspora

Originally from the nytimes.com in October 2005, I found this map graphic on mylifestream.net. This shows the geographic distribution of applications to FEMA for aid from Katrina victims. Presumably, that means the application locations imply where displaced Louisiana residents moved to.

The Coming Water Wars


Another graphic from Jonathan Harris from his time at Princeton with the International Networks Archive. It's a couple years old, but absolutely still relevant. I believe this is from around 2003.

Imagining the Tenth Dimension


Ten dimensions are really hard for most people to understand. Especially since our lives are constrained to only four dimensions. This video from tenthdimension.com does an EXCELLENT job of using pretty simple animation and illustrations to explain the 10 dimensions of our universe.

This video is really good, even if you're not a physicist.

Hans Rosling @ TED 2007

Here's part two, when Hans Rosling followed-up his 2006 presentation with updated software in 2007. It looks like he's been able to get more data from the UN also.

He gets really excited while describes what's happening as the software animates the data about world health.

Evolution of Apple Design


Wow! Have we come that far?!? I remember using the Apple II! The design form has really changed over 30 years (1976 - 2007).

I found this on Guy Kawasaki's Blog, but the original is at www.core77.com
