Re: 11.21 Status of Work-in-Progress

My primary goal for this week was to identify some potential articles, book, and proposals to look at in conjunction with Manovich's cultural analytics proposal. So far I'm looking at NSF's Cyberinfrastrucuture Vision Report published in 2007 (which Manovich mentions as a basis for the technology he...

Re: 10.24 Share some Code

After unsuccessfully attempting to stray from Sepand's original code, I ultimately stuck quite close to it in order to produce a successful code.

Alessandra's Response

One interesting theme that I found across the texts that were read for class this week was the issue of viewership. What audience is the visualization intended for and how might this audience interpret the visualization? At the beginning of the first article, “Visualization Criticism”, the authors a...
