I have completed a new fun data art project: I translated the ups and downs of the S&P 500 for the year into a reggae-ish song, while an animation represents the data visually and in sync with the music. It's been a record year for the S&P 500 -- and now you can hear it! [more inside]
The Prepaid Economy: African edition began as a means to track notes on the rise of Africa as an investment opportunity back in January 2010. Today it has over 28,000 readers on Tumblr, engaging an audience of young Afropolitans. We will be beginning a new series of discussion posts where engagement from our readers is encouraged. This Friday (25th January) we will be having our very first moderated conversation and the topic at hand will be “China’s presence in Africa.” If there are any particular article links or thoughts that you would like to see addressed in the discussion, feel free to share them and we’ll be sure to integrate them into the post. We look forward to hearing your input and hosting a productive conversation on the effects of China’s presence in Africa. Your moderator will be Beulah Osueke, currently Masters Degree student at LaSalle University, Philadelphia
In 2007 I released a turn-key online farmers market system. This is a major enhancement to that system, but also is a stand-alone resource. Customer, growers, and market managers at the markets using my system can now build a collection of recipes for their market. It offers the usual things you'd find in an online cookbook, but what sets this apart is the default view is seasonal, and reflects what is on sale at the market at that moment. Ingredients are tagged to available products, so shoppers can see recipes while they're shopping and recipe browsers can buy ingredients while they're reading. It helps close the distance between market and kitchen that intimidates timid market shoppers. All of the recipes for all of the markets are aggregated into a master searchable recipe listing (and that master list is what i've linked to), so if you're not a patron of one of the markets, you can still access the recipes, see where they came from, and subscribe via RSS to get seasonal recipes from around the country all year long.
