Nabakov on Storytelling

Literature was born not the day when a boy crying wolf, wolf came running out of the Neanderthal valley with a big gray wolf at his heels: literature was born on the day when a boy came crying wolf, wolf and there was no wolf behind him. That the poor little fellow because he lied too often was finally eaten up by a real beast is quite incidental. But here is what is important. Between the wolf in the tall grass and the wolf in the tall story there is a shimmering go-between. That go-between, that prism, is the art of literature.

Google Labs Music Timeline

The Music Timeline shows genres of music waxing and waning, based on how many Google Play Music users have an artist or album in their music library, and other data (such as album release dates). Each stripe on the graph represents a genre; the thickness of the stripe tells you roughly the popularity of music released in a given year in that genre. (For example, the "jazz" stripe is thick in the 1950s since many users' libraries contain jazz albums released in the '50s.) Click on the stripes to zoom into more specialized genres.

IMMERSION

Immersion [mit.edu] is a quite revealing visualization tool of which the NSA - or your own national security agency - can only be jealous of... Developed by MIT students Daniel SmilkovDeepak Jagdish and Cèsar Hidalgo, Immersion generates a time-varying network visualization of all your email contacts, based on how you historically communicated with them.

Immersion is able to aggregate and analyze the "From", "To", "Cc" and "Timestamp" data of all the messages in any (authorized) Gmail, MS Exchange or Yahoo email account. It then filters out the 'collaborators' - people from whom one has received, and sent, at least 3 email messages from, and to.
