Generating Utopia: What if you could map out your own world based on your FourSquare data?

From Stefan Wagner (via Gizmodo): 

»Generating Utopia« is a realtime visualization of social location data, made with Processing. Its aim is to show what human habitats could look like if it was possible to transform them depending on the location-based behavior of their residents.

 

We interrupt your normally scheduled dataviz to present our brand new sister site - The Political Party Time Tumblr! Take a look and give it a follow!

politicalpartytime:

Hello, Partiers!

Welcome to the official Political Party Time Tumblr - the brand new social extension of the Sunlight Foundation’s Political Party Time project.

For the better part of five years, Political Party Time has sought to accomplish one goal: to shed a healthy dose of sunlight on one of the more mysterious practices of the U.S. Congress — raising money.

From the early hours of the morning until late in the evening, politicians are breaking bread and sipping cocktails with donors. Sunlight’s Party Time lets you know who’s fundraising and where. 

The Political Party Time website is a catalog of crowdsourced political invitations that we collect from citizens, journalists and insiders alike. That quote above is our motto — our mission statement.

[SIDE NOTE: Got a hot ticket to a fundraiser you want to share? Click that envelope in the top-right corner. That’s right: the one that moves. Don’t be shy now! (You can also click here.)]

As an extension of that project, our mission on Tumblr is even simpler: to bring this clandestine world right to your Internets, and to do it in a way that Tumblr does best: with all the ‘notable’ content we can muster. 

 

Looking for a photographic representation of what a politician’s Teeni Weeni Bikini Martini party might look like? We’ll show you. Or how about what happens when you go into the Bayou with Sen. David Vitter? Or when pols party with Justin BieberBeyonce or THE BOSS? We’ll have all that, plus more.  

 

Stay tuned!

Most regulations get little attention from the public (and a lot from special interest groups).

As Bill Clinton tries to serve as Obamacare’s salesman in chief today, furious behind-the-scenes efforts are underway to influence how the writing of the rules that will implement the law. Of all the regulations under consideration by the federal government as of late last year, those involving health care were drawing the most comments, an analysis by Sunlight shows.

The top graphic displays how many comments have been counted on regulatory dockets, with health care by far outweighing other issues. To interact with the comments, visit the graphic here: http://assets.sunlightlabs.com.s3.amazonaws.com/regs_viz/treemap.html

This is a visualization of the 1100+ open datasets made available by New York City. It is a force-directed graph generated with the charting library d3.js. NYC’s open data portal runs on the Socrata platform, and this visualization was created using the "dataset of datasets" and the Socrata Open Data API (SODA).Why? The point is to show the scale of the portal, and to illustrate which datasets have user-created views. In the future, it would be great to dynamically size the circles by the popularity of the datasets.Code available on GithubVisualization by @chris_whong
