The scent of information

I just came back from the great workshop “The Scent of Information” organized by the visualization gang from LBI Linz. (program + live-blog) Here are the slides from my talk. Basically, I was presenting Andrew vande Moere’s and Andrea Lau’s triangle model of information aesthetics, and showed mostly well-formed.eigenfactor and briefly some of my thesis work.

xtopia video online


Happy new year everyone!

The video from my (german) xtopia talk is online. You need either the silverlight browser plugin to play it back, or you can download a high res version directly (144MB). And here are the slides.

Update: Here it is on vimeo as well. More web-friendly.

I speak about my work for the MACE project, and other ongoing work as well as some of the US election visualizations. The talk was fun and also received quite well; in the audience evaluation, I scored 7.88 (out of 9) for presentation style, 8.33 for competence, 7.85 for content of the presentation and 6.82 for business relevance.

In other news, things are a bit cumbersome at the moment, because I broke my leg and this will take a while to heal… But, it gives me the time to work on my portfolio page, which should be online soon.
