This Week in Infographics #12: State of Social Media 2012 and Taming Big Data

This weeks theme – the internet. We all use it and without it we would all be lost. We begin with the state of social media in 2012. We take a look at some of our favorite social media sites and see how they have been doing so far in 2012. Next we take a look at big data and how the growing data monster can be tamed. Then, what about the Facebook IPO? We look at the winners of the recent Facebook IPO launch. And finally, we throw in some thoughts on military spending. 1 – How is Social Media Faring in 2012?

This Week in Infographics #10: The Easy Way Isn’t Always So Simple

This Week in Infographics #10: The Easy Way Isn’t Always So Simple

The theme this week reminds me of watching fairy tales as a child. Remember how there was always a shortcut for the traveler? The shorter path was always dark and stormy, and the long path was sunny and lovely – the shortest distance between two points isn’t always the easiest way to get there. The interstate will have more traffic than the back roads during rush hour, and the seven day fad diet will ultimately create more work for you in the long run. Our first infographic takes us back to a “simpler time,” and compares it to today – the topic: poker. Taking a look at how the cowboys of the wild west played poker compared to our modern day gamer, will make anyone insecure. Next, companies are making it a little easier on their employees by allowing them to bring their own devices to work, however the price isn’t so simple since personal use is on the company’s dime. Then we take a look at yesterday’s internet vs. today – the design, and how it has changed things like how we get an education. Finally, the oldest tricks in the book are still alive and well today – the seven deadly sins. Luckily, our modern brain hacking abilities may actually put these psychological issues to rest for good. 1. | Poker: Wild West vs. Online   2. | The Real Cost of BYOD   3. | The Internet of Yesterday vs. Today 4. | How has Internet Changed Education? 5. | Brain Hack the Seven Deadly...
This Week in Infographics #9: A Social Media Timeline

This Week in Infographics #9: A Social Media Timeline

Obviously the theme of this week’s infographics is social media. We begin with Mark Zuckerberg and a Facebook timeline of his career based on the movie Social Network. Then we look at the accomplishments of another technological genius, Steve Jobs, and how an Apple a day really does keep the viruses away. Next, we will explore the latest craze that will inevitably change our way of life just as the previous advances did. But is all of this greatness putting a damper on our creativity? Turns out we may be facing a war between productivity and creativity. Those joining the workforce have completely different views from those running the show. Finally, our baby millennials know nothing before computers and social media. How will the leaders of tomorrow view privacy and corporate mentality in a world where they live out loud and would rather have time on their side than make millions? 1. | Social Life: A Timeline of Life of Mark Zuckerberg   2. | Just how big is Apple 3. | Wake up Call   4. | Global Creativity Gap   5. | The Millennial Teenager   Courtesy of: Online...
