I thought you’d all like this. It’s all words, but patterned in a beautiful and useful way. It shows what foods go well with what other foods, organizing them in large categories (e.g., root vegetables) and raying out from specific examples (e.g. beets) to show what flavors go well with them. Very cute! Someone could have fun doing a version with images.

THe link lets you look at many of his data visualizations if you check them out. Here is a link to his TED talk: Link: http://www.ted.com/talks/david_mccandless_the_beauty_of_data_visualization.html Lynn Kearny

This week is one of my favorite times of year.
I am in the US state of Maine, along the Atlantic coast covered with leaves changing color in anticipation of winter.
, where I not only work to create paintings for the ideas of the 30+ speakers, but also try to teach graphic visualization skills.
To see paintings created during past conferences, visit:
Above is a dramatic photo of the students creating a visual model of their ventures and life history. The pic was snapped by Erik Hersman
, co-founder of Ushahidi. He has a wonderful post describing the PopTech Social Innovation Fellows Program, with more images of us in action. Check it out: http://whiteafrican.com/2011/10/14/poptech-fellows-2011/
Got to catch up with another key member of the program, Ken Banks, founder of the founder of kiwanja.net, which helps non-profits put mobiles to work through innovative offerings like FrontlineSMS. We were talking shop about growing organizations and scaling up for real impact. He referred me to a blog post of his that has gotten some attention: The Rolling Stones School of Management Innovation.
