Really nice data viz….sobering statistics (hey-ohhhh)
thedailyfeed:

One in six American adults is a binge drinker, consuming alcohol in excess about four times a month, according to a sobering CDC report. In the infographic above, you’ll find the percentage of population classified as binge drinkers.

The study — which defines binge drinking as five or more drinks in a short period of time for men and four or more for women — breaks down the nation’s 38 million binge drinkers by a variety of measures, including geography, age and income level. Wisconsin is the state with the most binge drinkers at 25 percent of the population, while Utah, home to the teetotaling Mormon church, comes in last at less than 11 percent.

Data Visualization: World travel and communications recorded on Twitter 
By Eric Fischer



Green is physical movement from place to place; purple is @replies from someone in one location to someone in another; combining to white where there is both.
Reported trips to Null Island excluded; all other geotags trusted.  Endpoints of trips are real data; routes in between are fabricated.
Data from the Twitter streaming API through September 1, 2011.  Continent shapes from Natural Earth.

How have I not seen this before? Brilliant

NIKE+ 26′

The shoe has 26 lights embedded within it so anyone can see how far you’ve run, 1 light for every mile, and is a physical prototype that shows how it could look. It can sense movement and ideally would be hooked up to NIKE+ technology to measure the distance run. My idea is about exploring the broadcasting of the NIKE+ information that has so far always remained private to each runner. For each mile you run a light goes on from the back of the trainer to the front so that when you pass someone running, they know you’re faster and have gone further.
