un outil pour plotter des #millions de données directement sur l’écran, ce qui permet des analyses étonnantes (vers la fin, une démonstration du gerrymandering, très impressionnante)
dans cette présentation de Michael Freeman, on parle un peu de #d3.js mais surtout des concepts qu’il s’agit de représenter.
vers la fin on voit comment Facebook, Twitter etc. ont un accès instantané, à travers divers filtres, à l’ensemble des centaines de millions d’infos qu’ils collectent en temps réel
Emptyset – Signal
An exclusive premiere here for this extraordinary piece by Emptyset, the British duo of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas. Signal was recorded live at CTM festival in Berlin earlier this year, and involved taking sine waves and beaming them around Europe in real time, before playing back the distorted results. The audio was fired first to the oldest radio transmission station in the world in Nauen, 40 miles away, and then sent to the French radio base Émetteur d’Issoudun, before being routed back to the concert venue. Along the way, the atmosphere and ionosphere break up the purity of the waves, resulting in the scoured, pulsating mutant you hear here.
The Continuing Myth about USA Freedom Transparency
Published October 3, 2014 | By #emptywheel
Summary: This is a response to an Elizabeth Goitein claim that USA Freedom would provide detailed reporting on #FISA programs. That’s false. As I show below, the only three kinds of collection for which reasonably real numbers will be reported are Individual FISA orders, NSLs (though FBI refuses to count those accurately), and the new CDR provision (though it will be presented as foreign collection even though it will be domestic). On everything else, the reporting will be excepted away beyond usefulness. Further, both PRTT and traditional 215 will likely get reported only as “fewer than 500,” a significant regression from current reporting.
