Midterm Critique Feedback

On 06, Mar 2014 | No Comments | In Thesis | By Steven Burrows

Leister —

  • A good amount of progress has been made and the topic is interesting.
  • The motion graphic piece needs a stronger ending. Talk about what the workshop will do for them.
  • Consider self-esteem as a major factor in motivating people. How can this be used in my workshop?
  • Have designers also look at the Experiment case-studies (in addition the the scientists) to see if they can also guess which ones were funded correctly. This will test if designers have an eye for projects that might be funded successfully more so than scientists (or not?!)
  • The process book in progress: the type is too big and too crowded. Test print everything!

Science and Storytelling: The use of stories in science education

On 04, Mar 2014 | No Comments | In Thesis | By Steven Burrows

Last year, I had a chance to speak at TEDxQueensu . My basic premise is this: Science is awesome, but science needs to do a better job of communicating that awesomeness to non-scientists. We’re sitting on the frontiers of human knowledge, and yet we cannot get others as excited about this issue that we’re very, very passionate about.

On 03, Mar 2014 | No Comments | In Thesis | By Steven Burrows

Experiment (formally Microryza) has had its first crowd-funded project peer-reviewed. This is great news in the fight for the acceptance of crowd-funded research within the traditional/established scientific peer review system.

“Professor Dan Jaffe at the University of Washington has announced that they’ve published the results of their funded study in a peer-reviewed journal. Over 271 people came together to enable the research at $20,529.”

Inspiration | Stuxnet: Anatomy of a Computer Virus

On 02, Mar 2014 | No Comments | In Thesis | By Steven Burrows

I really like the aesthetics of Patrick Clair’s work. It might be a bit to stylish for the scientist audience, but I think the animations are very engaging, and it delivers a LOT of information in a easy to understand story. The Data visualizations are great. He also did “How Green is your Internet“.
