You Front Page, In Binary
The New Zurich Times (Neue Zürcher Zeitung), one of Europe’s oldest newspapers, celebrates its move to bring the entirety of its content online by publishing the front page of its print edition in binary.
Our praise comes in three simple words: 011101000110100001100001011101000010000001101001011100110010000001100001011101110110010101110011011011110110110101100101

From the Data Team at Facebook comes this visualization of Facebook users’ travel so far this year. Data Scientist Justin Moore explains:
This map represents a year-to-date view of Facebook users checking into two distinct areas of the world. As a proxy for plane travel, certain restrictions were placed on the distance and time between the two locations. The result was more informative than simply illustrating airport check-ins and demonstrates interesting insights, such as common long-haul travel routes, with a clear concentration between Europe and North America.
According to a new report by the National Counter Terrorism Center, the number of U.S. citizens who died in terrorist attacks increased by two between 2010 and 2011; overall, a comparable number of Americans are crushed to death by their televisions or furniture each year. This is not to diminish the real—albeit shrinking—threat of terrorism, or to minimize the loss and suffering of the 13,000 killed and over 45,000 injured around the world. For Americans, however, it should emphasize that an irrational fear of terrorism is both unwarranted and a poor basis for public policy decisions.
