Jon brings his expertise in storytelling and data to O'Reilly.
Jon joins our Radar team this month from Forbes where he covered the technology of data. I liked that he called himself a datanaut but I liked even more that he illustrated his pieces with great interactive visualizations and applications. I mean how cool is this?
Jon will continue to cover data, but he’ll also be digging into the Internet of Things, the dynamics of technology and cities, and whatever interesting things catch his attention. I expect you’ll be seeing a lot of him here.
As GM, Radar.
Radar isn't just this blog, and it isn't a passive thing. We'll make some noise and listen for echoes.
Titles that caught the attention of Radar's contributors.
I asked the Radar folks for the best books they read in 2010. Perhaps somewhere in this list of recommendations you'll find a title that tickles your fancy enough to push aside the old books.
A new version of Radar is coming soon. Here's what we have planned.
Radar will get refreshed later this week with a new look and more functionality. This brief overview offers a preview of the design and explains our rationale for the change.
