ReBlog: Brain Pickings’ Dogs of NYC: An Interactive Watercolor Map of the City’s Canine Caucus

dogs of ny

I’m currently enrolled in Alberto Cairo’s MOOC class, Introduction to Data Visualization and Infographics, offered through the Knight Foundation and The University of Texas. Most of the graphics and visualizations that we discuss and review in class are serious, poignant, and scientifically sound. What interests me more are the whimsical and perhaps slightly less statistically important visualizations often created by artists and amateurs. This interactive watercolor map, the Dogs of NYC was created by the “data team” at WNYC (John Keefe, Stephen Reader, Steven Melendez and Louis Ma). It is pure fun. The numbers are probably accurate, too. But more importantly, the subject is at once silly and interesting.

Now I know which neighborhood to avoid if I don’t want to have a run in with a pit bull!

Little Printer spits out customized news, updates, and other networked fun.

Check out The Best Smart Products of 2012 from Technology on GOOD. I know it’s environmentally unsound, but the Little Printer is so adorable. Also on this list is the Philips Hue, which reminds me of the room lighting settings we could control through the TV interface on a trip to Amsterdam.
