Talks and Graphs February 3, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in CMU, history, science, statistics.
Folks over at TED continue to put up some really cool talks on their site. The latest one is on London in the mid-19th century. I wonder if thats how London was in the colonial era and the British in India still grumbled about India, either they were plain lying or it must have been so much worse.

“Nice guys finish last” – an extremely engaging video on game theory, how we think and strategize and some commentary on the prisoners’ dilemmas. Narrator : Richard Dawkins, from somewhere in the 1980s.

Data and Visualization technologies now : I talked about Swivel some time back.
IBM now has an application up here – Many Eyes they call it. And yeah, 2 of the 6 people at IBM who built this are CMU grads !

(Still), I don’t understand why this graph has to look the way it does. 🙂
