  1. Mappiness development

    Some thoughts on the development process of my Mappiness chart

  2. Mappiness chart

    I made a tool for close analysis of data generated by the Mappiness iPhone app.

  1. Pubstandards.pdf

    A chart showing the movement of people in London’s Pub Standards community from one company to another. I was looking for this and couldn’t find it and now it’s here.

    @holgate @bobbie @hondanhon No, it was a slightly younger generation.

    @holgate @bobbie @hondanhon There was a chart of a subset of London tech folk and where they had worked/do work. Can't remember where…

    @frankieroberto Not sure. I just mean the act of thinking about it when prompted is healthy, even if you never look at the data later.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @frankieroberto But I think just thinking about whether and why you're happy/not happy is probably healthy.

    @frankieroberto I've learned one or two things, but not a lot considering how much I've used it.

    @frankieroberto Thanks, but I’m not sure it’s something I should be proud of :)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @frankieroberto Yeah, that might be nice. Not sure I’ll get round to adding anything new to it though, tbh.

    @frankieroberto What happens if there are 2 or more lines displayed?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @frankieroberto I’m not sure what you mean…? So you ignore the y-coordinate when deciding which info to show in the tooltip-box?

    @phl S/he never seemed to have a moment to themselves!

    I made a tool to analyse data from @mappiness_app gyford.com/misc/mappiness/ and wrote about it gyford.com/phil/writing/2… & gyford.com/phil/writing/2…

    @cityofsound @agpublic @stml Using balloons in NY to see what view from new buildings will be nytimes.com/2014/04/24/nyr… The wrong way round!
