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.

    Thanks for the slides. The link to Moere and Lau triangle seems to be broken though.

    Dear Moritz (in the end we have the same name!)

    I’m head of Marketing & Consumer Research at Givaudan (perfume house).

    I am working on topics similar to yours somehow.

    I would like to see if we could connect…
    By the way…why this was called the “scent of information” if I may?

    Please reply to my email above

    Thanks for your interest! The workshop was called “The Scent of Information”. The notion goes back to information foraging theory, developed at Xerox Parc and comparing information search to animals’ hunting and food search behavior.
