what happens when artists get together with scientists over beer

Artist Blprnt took his curiosity for visualizing information that isn't shared, but inferred, and explored how that might be put to good use.

The video clip above uses a database of of tweets featuring the words "just landed" and maps them across the globe visually. This would seem to be a good graphical representation of the people (on Twitter) who are currently landing in airports. Find more detail on Blprnt's blog.

The whole experiment came out of a discussion with a friend in bioinformatics chatting about new ways to chart the transmission of disease (relevant to that stupid pig virus.)

Proof that curiosity and design can accomplish awesome things. From Under Consideration.
