Four short links: 14 December 2009

Archival Footage, Interesting Visualization, Year of Ideas, Zoomable Time Graphs

  1. Videos from the vault of the National Archives — the public domain US government videos that have been scanning. Check out China’s Great Leap Forward (the Beijing landscape has changed!), John James Audubon’s Birds of America, and Nature’s Half-Acre.
  2. Browser Market Share — fantastic circular visualisation of browser share over time. (via Mike Loukides)
  3. NYT Year in Ideas — some fantastic stuff, but I think my favourite is Zombie Attack Science.
  4. dygraphs — Javascript library that creates gorgeous zoomable graphs of timeseries data.

    Solely to see how the implied story changes, I’d love to see the browser-share visualization with the present day the innermost ring and January 2002 the outermost.
