“Nodes are Twitter handles, and their connections represent who follow relationships,” said Lotan in a blog post explaining the visualization. “The larger a node, the higher its centrality, the more followed that account is within this group. The closer together two nodes, the more connections they share. Different colors represent communities, effectively regions that display significant levels of connectivity; nodes of the same color are much more interconnected compared to the rest of the graph.” Green represents Twitter accounts and connections with more pro-Hamas messages, gray circles neutral journalist and news feeds, the light blue are pro-Israel feeds, and the darker blue are US conservatives who are pro-Israel.

Ofer: Thank you Mr. Albert Einstein for joining this interview. And thank you also very much for being a dyslexic genius. One of the major misconceptions that people have is that people with dyslexia have a lower intelligence. That is ridiculous of course…

Mr. Albert Einstein: “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe”.

Ofer: Your son Hans Einstein has be quoted as saying that your “ teachers reported that … you were mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in his foolish dreams”. How do you describe your experiences at school and with your teachers?

Mr. Albert Einstein: “Most teachers waste their time by asking questions which are intended to discover what a pupil does not know. Whereas the true art of questioning has for its purpose to discover what the pupil knows or is capable of knowing”.

"What is going on? I wondered. Have I ever experienced anything like this before? Have I ever felt like this before? This feels like a migraine. What is happening in my brain?
The harder I tried to concentrate, the more fleeting my ideas seemed to be. Instead of finding answers and information, I met a growing sense of peace. As the language centers in my left hemisphere grew increasingly silent, my consciousness soared into an all-knowingness, a “being at one” with the universe, if you will. In a compelling sort of way, it felt like the good road home and I liked it."

Love the way the images get larger in this pic as your eyes move up the wall. Also love the use of the washing line and pegs.

I decided whilst doing the Kickstarter campaign that it just didn’t make sense forcing myself into having to put up a post everyday when I needed to be concentrating on other things. Quality I decided was more important than quantity!

Maria Popova: The Architecture of Knowledge

Really good talk about convergent Knowledge. Glad I’m not the only one who goes on about Gutenberg and the wine press!

'It is not the existence of knowledge but the convergence and cross pollination of knowledge that drives progress'

Thought it might be a different/more engaging and enjoyable way of exploring ideas I first put forward in my disertation:
i.e. Does the media saturated world create the perfect vessel for the expression of the inner emotion by letting the pure intensity of the medium express its emotions? Or are we within a meaningless hyper real existence where the individual has become a drone lost within the mechanized noise of the spectacle?
