Study: US government is an oligarchy Researchers from Princeton and Northwestern Universities released a study in April that found U.S. politicians more often reflect the wishes of the rich and powerful over the needs of the majority of Americans, who have a "minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy."

Say Hey To  Amazing-Er Maps!
There’s lots of maps on the internet. The idea behind this project is to improve, to give people a forum to show how they might display the same information. Anyone can contribute under a common set of guidelines:
See a map on the internet
Find and open the data or source
Create and share the new map
Pretty simple. And because it’s on GitHub, the repository can be an evolving directory of open data and resources. That also means the process can change or improve as needed. 
What it’s not is a jab at the original map maker. It’s a way for anyone to see a map of economic activity in the US and improve that map based on their knowledge of data visualization, or economic geography, for example. 
It’s soooo easy to make an interactive map with current technology, and that gives the map viewer all that extra information on a mouse hover. Don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE making paper maps. 
I’ve created some examples to explain the idea behind Amazing-Er Maps further. Within the repository you can comment (please comment), suggest (please suggest), ask (please ask), and contribute (please contribute). And if you need help, just ask! 
It’s also nice to hear what some of my favorite cartographers and map friends are saying about Amazing-er Maps

Great idea from @jonahadkins: Amazing-Er-Maps, improving “amazing” (bad) maps on the internet instead of complaining https://t.co/7m1dLHgAlG — Andy Woodruff (@awoodruff)
I love this! Amazing-er maps started by @jonahadkins. https://t.co/RhvIRG8jKm — Gretchen Peterson (@PetersonGIS)
Attn cartographers: @jonahadkins has created an opportunity to fix the bad! https://t.co/RA2b8bXbdB — Stephanie May (@mizmay)
Correcting #cartofails head on… Hope it encourages fewer at source too RT @jonahadkins Idea To Improve [bad maps] http://t.co/qAfnNCMRQr — Kenneth Field (@kennethfield)

Thanks, Jonah (@jonahadkins)

"The Decoded Data in a Day course is a real eye-opener. Boring tables of data burst into life in front of our eyes and the secrets of data visualisation were laid bare for us to use. Now I’m back at the office I’m actually looking for a boring Excel spreadsheet to transform - I never thought I’d be excited by data but my transformation is now complete."

Carolyne Mitchell - Information Officer, South Lanarkshire Council (via decodedco)

Introduction to Data Scraping

interactivej:

Data-driven journalism is flourishing as more government agencies, nonprofits and research institutions and think tanks publish their data sets on the Internet. This data is most often available in a format that is easily downloaded and analyzed. The downside, however, is that nearly every journalist across the country has access to the same data.

To stand out, journalists need to find, gather and analyze interesting data that has not been neatly packaged. And there is a proliferation of such information tucked away on local, state and federal websites and on sites run by private companies.
