We started the day by asking everyone to describe what their trusted sources are for information and advice about their health. We got quite a lot of responses both on Facebook and in person, and on the wall of our project space.

A little more surprisingly, though, there were several threads that were about people being afraid that their own ability to judge for...

When you first walk into TED2012 Full Spectrum at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, you might not notice the thousands of strings strung between the stairs on the second and third levels.

Inspiration comes in many forms.

Sometimes you get in a rut. You feel uninspired or stuck or like maybe you’ve “lost it.” Maybe you’re a little rusty and don’t trust your skills anymore.

Infographics, data visualizations, visual knowledge…whatever you call it, it’s everywhere, and most of the time, it’s pretty interesting.
