I love GetGlue. I like the app and the sense of community it creates. My only issue with the app -more the data – is that it doesn’t address the long tail of “TV” watching. In other words, I don’t watch TV. (Except for Bourdain.) Instead, the majority of my time watching video is online: Vimeo, Tumblr & YouTube. I have been very fortunate to find some amazing...
Here is another amazing example of data visualization from Foursquare. This one shows a comparison between New York and Tokyo and I saw this at #BigBoulder. Enjoy!
I love data. I especially love data visualization. This is a great video highlighting where people were during Hurricane Sandy. Enjoy!

With the world becoming more bitesize (think Twitter, Instagram, Reeses bites, business plans, online product demos) we will become more challenged to deliver compelling content that’s been compressed. This is a great example of what can be done in six seconds! Enjoy.
This is a much different tact than most companies take on the future where every surface is an interface. (See Corning’s take here) This would be a less expensive option. Enjoy!
Two years ago, I wrote an open letter to Sir Richard Branson congratulating him on the launch of Virgin America’s in-flight entertainment system. I did this because it was for the most part, exactly what we had designed under the brand Cockpit6 back in the early 2000s. (click here.) It seems as thought he finally got around to adding another part of our offering. :) Enjoy the video!
