Using last.fm Data to Map Geographic Flow of Music
By tapping into the last.fm API, these Irish researchers modeled the geographic flow of musical influence. They were able to identify where certain tastes frequently originated, and draw a hierarchy of influential cities (like the chart shown above for North America).
Surprisingly, the size of a city doesn’t associate very strongly with how influential it is. That means that despite its enormous size, NYC isn’t that much more influential than Portland or Austin. There are prevailing theories that large cities are the drivers of cultural invention, but this seems to show (for music, at least) that a connected online world is leveling that playing field.
Also, they have a graph displaying “Normalized Radiohead vs. Normalized Coldplay”, which has to go down as one of the best figures in a research paper, ever.

More reason to scrobble.

Mapping Number of Night Market Stalls in Kuala Lumpur = 31,652 stalls
The data was sourced from the city council.  As in the previous map, each colour represents each day.  In this map, the tallest bar represents the highest number of stalls, which marks the largest or longest night market.  Now that I’m taking a second look at this, Pasar Malam Taman Sri Petaling on Tuesday nights actually has 900 stalls - marked by the tallest blue bar.  Pasar Malam Taman Connaught comes in second with 702 stalls.  Now that we’ve seen temporary markets as an amazing phenomenon in the country, we should be able to anticipate this in our future city planning (read: phd contribution, hopefully!)

Sri Petaling (Tuesday) is near my Oil & Gas office. Taman Connaught (Wednesday) is near my apartment. The infographics and the statistics are useful in order to get the best of the time-lapse exposure. The larger the traffic, the better the flow of the time-lapse can be captured.
I agreed with the urban planning to redesign more public space i.e. temporary markets and gardens for the community. We’re choked with the concrete and the asphalt, we forget how lush the empty space are.
I’m supposed to be in Vietnam for backpacking holiday. Missed the flight today. Yeah, fickle traveler me.
Now I know what I’m looking forward to this week. That, and all the the delayed editing of past videography work, and one of them is the bootleg video of your New Yorker sister last Work Presentation at The Republik. The one I uploaded at the youtube is a raw file. Grainy — should have use faster prime lens. Oh, well.
Cheers!

Last night I was at the Vincent Moon & Efterklang, An Island screening at Eightyfourcube Studio. Even though it’s an acoustic short film yet soundscape of the landscape plays a vital part in the film.
Since I’ll be at the place for hours. I might as well capture the soundscape of the place and translated it into infographics of peak wave form.
There’ll be mash of time-lapse and wave-form graph. Like some wicked sci-fi movie. Hahaha. I’m just being optimistic. Is there an apps for capturing the waveform into infographics other than me just print screen the Final Cut Pro’s sound bar?

That’s why I go to Engineering school — abstract yet practical.
