Stunning interactive storytelling fromPudding Cool, one of the new wave of data visualisation blogs out there. Truckers vs Developers compared on ‘automate-ability’. Truckers don’t fare well but likely overoptimistic on developers also I’d say. Have a playhere
The hate for open plan offices has hitapogeeof late, so maybe it’s time to give up on trying to design how we use space in work. How about we leave it to algorithms? Genetic algorithms to be precise, using darwinian evolution to evolve a floor plan. Someone shouldreally give this a try.
