Icons of the Web – An Infographic

27 Aug

So this is an infographic of the 288,945 most popular sites on the internet. It was created by using a web script to scrape the favicons of the world’s most popular websites, as ranked by Alexa. Now that all sounds a little complicated – but basically, those favicons were scaled according to the amount of traffic that site gets and then depicted in the infographic above. The largest icon is, of course, Google, which is 11,936 square pixels. The whole diagram is 37,440 square pixels. You can learn more about the method from the peeps at Nmap.

Inception – Love It or Hate It

11 Aug

Inception. Love it or hate it – it’s part of the pop-cultural conversation. Personally, I loved it (even watched it twice!). My favourite interpretation of the film comes from Bilge Ebiri in New York Magazine:

Inception’s titular concept is the placement of an idea into a character’s subconscious — a notion that the film presents as being more or less unprecedented. And the plot mostly concerns the efforts of our heroes, led by master dream extractor Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) to somehow convince Fischer (Cillian Murphy), the heir to a major energy titan, to split up his father’s empire, without realizing that the idea came from them. But since this is a Christopher Nolan movie, we’re not convinced it’s all that simple; the director’s films almost always turn in on themselves. We think there might be another inception going on in Inception.

The plot of the contemporary sci-fi actioner has also inspired some pretty cool infographics. Love it or hate it, take your pick from the infographics below!

Iran: A nation of bloggers

27 Nov

Vodpod videos no longer available.  

Woah! Four international students from Vancouver Film School‘s Digital Design department (Aaron Chiesa, Hendy Sukarya, Lisa Temes and Toru Kageyama) created this infographic entitled “Iran: A nation of bloggers” for their final term 3 project. From a script written by Kate Tremills, the short film highlights the cultural importance/relevance of blogging as an agent of change in Iran. The animation is uber-clean and sits perfectly with the matter-of-fact voiceover.
