The Book Concierge: Bringing Together Two Teams, Nine Reporters, And Over 200 Books

This post is cross-posted with our friends at Source. We started the Book Concierge with the NPR Books team about four weeks back in early November. I worked alongside Danny Debelius, Jeremy Bowers and Chris Groskopf. The project centered on Books’ annual best books review, which is traditionally published in multiple lists in categories like “10 Books To Help You Recover From A Tense 2012.” But this presentation was limiting; Books wanted to take a break from lists. We needed…

Network Diagrams Are Hard – Features

Features: NPR’s Alyson Hurt on the challenges of making good network diagrams They seem like a natural solution to showing the interconnectedness of related things, but too often network diagrams look more like abstract string art—some discernible clusters here and there, but few obvious takeaways beyond “yes, this is a complicated thing.” To me, the better network diagrams offset that sense of overwhelming complexity with 1) legibility—elements (or at least clusters) and their labels are clear, and the connections easy to follow—and…

Chemical Engineering World: Energy Harvesting Future

We are witnessing the tremendous demand of energy by our very own eyes. The petroleum, natural gas, coal and others are non-renewable sources of energy that will soon deplete. Hence, efforts are driven on renewable energy such as solar, wind, water, biodiesel, biomass and so on. The renewable energy efforts are quite expensive since it is relatively new and not really establish yet. As a chemical engineer, we need to think, contribute and take some level of action towards promoting…

Complex But Not Dynamic: Using A Static Site To Crowdsource Playgrounds

This post is cross-posted with our friends at Source. We usually build relatively simple sites with our app template. Our accessible playgrounds project needed to be more complex. We needed to deal with moderated, user-generated data. But we didn’t have to run a server in order to make this site work; we just modified our app template. Asynchronous Updates App template-based sites are HTML files rendered from templates and deployed to Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3). This technique works tremendously…
