Twitter traffic as contoured landscape

There’s a piece over at the Londonist which has alerted us to this brilliant map.

Created by Fabian Neuhaus, at UCL’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, it shows London Twitter traffic as a contoured landscape.

It’s really cool stuff, and we especially like the detail of renaming London’s zones to reflect that they’re now peaks and valleys – Deptford Tor being a particular favourite.

Nauhaus is creating some fantastic stuff on his UrbanTick blog, which is well worth a few minutes of your time, if this Twitter map has got you all a bit excited.

Google Pac-Man costs 4.82 million productivity hours in one day

When Google launched its playable Pac-Man 30th anniversary Google Doodle last Friday, they thought it might be popular, but not quadruple visit times!
RescueTime, makers of productivity tracking and optimisation software found the following…
• 4,819,352 hours of time lost. This is above the 33.6 million man hours of attention Google gets on a regular day.
• More than $120 million in lost productivity, assuming the cost of the average Google user is $25 an hour (that’s pay plus benefits).
• For that same cost, you could hire all 19,835 google employees, from Larry and Sergey down to their janitors, and get 6 weeks of their time.
