Visualizing the Influence of Egyptian Bloggers

first_imgTags:#international#NYT#Visualization#web Super-high resolution PDF here.According to Boguta, the language choice – most of the bloggers speak both Arabic and English – is an important element. Some make the choice to connect with other Arabic-speakers, probably a function of the organizational use of the Web by people on the ground. The choice of English is, among other things, a choice to spread the circumstances, flight and day-to-day activities of the first group, to the wider world. “For me, the point is that the activists are cooperating with the west, on their own terms and in a constructive way…(I)n fact that is a key element and what allows this much bigger exoskeleton to tightly interface to the core. This is in contrast to what happened in Iran 2009…where the connections between those in Iran and the rest of the world were very thin and easily severed.”Wael Ghonim is a good example of how the visualization works. Large circle, well connected, surrounded by a large group of Twitter-users whom he influences.Interesting to notice is the scattered group on the far left, which are mostly U.S. government and corporations like Google. “And that’s probably how everyone in the rest of the network would like this future to look.”Street photo via Al Jazeera | thanks to Josh Jones-Dilworth 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Kovas Boguta, the head of analytics at Weebly and a guest author on ReadWriteWeb, has created another powerful data visualization, this time of the “the pro-democracy movement in Egypt and across the Middle East.” The visualization drew from Twitter use by Egyptians and influential others around the #jan25 uprising.

Simulating Light From A Screen

first_imgDo you have suggestions for simulating screen light? Let us know in the comments. These techniques will help you simulate moving light from a television, computer, or phone on your next shoot.Top image via Shutterstock.When you’re trying to replicate the light from a screen, one of the key elements is the flicker created by changes in light between shots and scenes in a show, a movie, or streaming content.There are several ways to achieve this look, so let’s have a look at a few.Moving GelIn this video from the NextWaveDV channel, the filmmakers created the TV light effect with only a few pieces of equipment from the most basic kits. They use a tungsten light corrected to daylight with the camera balanced at a tungsten setting. This results in the familiar blue light most of us are familiar with. The light bounces from a reflector, as the Fresnel on its own would be too powerful, and the lighting technician then frequently moves a CTO gel back and forth between the Fresnel and reflector to create the color flicker. The results at 3:12 are very convincing.By taking a cue from Tom Antos’s video tutorial on the subject, you can place a set of light gels onto the bottom of a stand in separate sections. Then, rotate them rapidly to create the disjointed color and flicker associated with old projectors.LEDs Long gone are the days of LCD and plasma televisions. Most TVs on the market in 2016 are LED or OLED. Using a LED light panel is going to bring you one step closer to accurately replicating the look. Take the following still from Prisoners, for example.While it may look like the actors are watching TV, the light is coming from an LED panel. The crew increased and decreased the intensity of the light to imitate scene changes.That TV effect was done using a LED lamp. Often I will use a fluorescent fixture for a television effect, but the LED panel creates a similar soft light from a small unit. The flags you are asking about are often called ‘meat axes.’ Here I was using them to reduce the TV light hitting the background. I wanted Hugh to be quite shadowed as he walked from the stairs as the focus was on the two kids on the couch. — Roger DeakinsThe TechniqueYou’re going to need an LED panel, diffusion (frosted glass, diffusion paper, or diffusion gel), a dimmer remote, and flags.There are plenty of LED panels on the market, but I’ve had success with the Aputure LS1, primarily because it has a remote function. Many LED panels feature a knob or a set of buttons to alter the intensity of the light, but if you have to push buttons, there’s a chance you’ll move the light, which will ruin the effect.Place your LED panel a few feet away from the actors, and then find your target exposure. Remember, the reason to use lights to replicate TV light is because the actual light from a TV isn’t sufficient or controllable, so you don’t want your actors underexposed by the LED panel. Place a single sheet of the lowest diffusion gel you have over the LED to remove the initial glare. Finally, for a test run, increase and decrease the intensity every few seconds to mimic a scene change on the TV.Video Playerhttps://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/LED-TV-Example.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/LED-TV-Example.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The final result produces a much brighter (and controlled) exposure than an actual TV would offer.What about phone screens?While you won’t encounter a flicker problem with most modern smartphones, their light is often too weak if you want to use the phone light as the key. There are many LED lights on the market that are smaller than most smartphones. You can very easily conceal one with the phone screen.last_img read more
