in reality, I understand our role to be the one of a craftsman rather than a trailblazer. In most of our projects, we help people to analyze data efficiently, to understand information intuitively, and to apply their knowledge confidently. In that sense, we are not the adventurer himself, but rather his support team. We are the builders of instruments to overcome his human limitations. We are the engineers of vehicles that transport him into foreign territory. And we are the drawers of maps to help him navigate once he gets there.

Craftsmen to overcome human limitations.


Love might die, but its digital counterpart never does. There’s just no way to completely scrub your digital self from a relationship in 2014…no way to maintain an ‘out of this relationship’ message proclaiming, ‘In case you missed it, we are broken up!’ For people who live online like I do, the very lifecycle of a breakup has been redefined.

The chart was a way for McCallum to get a handle on a complex system made more confusing by the new availability of data from the use of the telegraph (invented in 1844).
Designed by McCallum and drafted by G.H. Henshaw, a civil engineer, the chart draws from thenatural motifs popular in the Victorian aesthetic. 
alangalan:

With this 1855 chart, Daniel McCallum, general superintendent of the New York and Erie Railroad, tried to define an organizational structure that would allow management of a business that was becoming unwieldy in its size. The document is generally recognized to be the first formal organizational chart. (via The first modern organizational chart is a thing of beauty.)

Isosurface created with Marching Cubes, and bump added with normal mapping.
Code by Jaume Sánchez @thespite using three.js.
Following the triplanar mapping explained in this GPU Gems 3 article is possible to generate the Tangent Space Basis in the fragment shader.
Shading is the same MatCap as Spherical Environment Mapping.
