TileMill: Creating interactive maps
Experimenting w/ TileMill – a tool to create interactive (data driven) maps w/ CSS – which looks easier than it is, but I like it! #mozfest — Yordi Dam (@yordidam) October 27, 2013
Whether you’re a journalist, web designer, researcher, or seasoned cartographer, TileMill is the design studio you need to create stunning interactive maps.
Brett Gaylor & Upian: Do not track
Upian working of “Do not track” – using tracking software to question who is tracking us and to what end? @i_docs @upian @abrachet — sandra gaudenzi (@sgaudenzi) October 27, 2013
“DO NOT TRACK”: LET’S TRACK THE TRACKERS is an interactive documentary in progress directed by Brett Gaylor and produced by Arte & Upian. You can help them collect data about the trackers by downloading Collusion the experimental add-on for firefox. Collusion is an experimental add-on for Firefox that allows you to see all the third parties that are tracking your movements across the Web. It shows, in real time, how that data creates a spider-web of interaction between companies and other trackers. Find out more here and watch the teaser.
