How to create your own Infographic

January 20th, 2013 No comments

I am always astounded by the creativity and simplicity  of some of the visual representations that folks come up with.  For these visual representations to work for me, they need to convey the information simply and allow me to absorb it in seconds.  And then I came across this infographic on what makes a visual representation work and how to create your own.

Here is a link to site that has an Infographic that takes you through how to create an infographic.  Enjoy.

An uplifting manifesto

January 10th, 2013 1 comment

I saw this manifesto as a custom subway poster looking for gifts late last year and am sharing.  The Holstee Manifesto was written by two brothers, Mike and Dave Radparvar and their business partner, Fabian Pfortmuller on the steps of Union Square.  They basically just wrote down what was on their minds.

Free Stuff – iPhone Applications that can help you grow

December 13th, 2009 No comments

In an effort to utilize some of the time that goes to waste everyday, I decided to download some non-fiction books for my iPhone.  My plan was to put the various time slots that are normally spent not being used productively in a more constructive manner.  And so my search started and found some free applications.  I approached with caution because I was not expecting much from free stuff.

I found a number of applications created by the folks at Tapstack where they have taken a number of non-fiction books and converted some of the core content into flash cards that are easily viewable on the iPhone.  Here are some of the books that I downloaded from the AppStore.

The application provides selected content specifically formatted for the iPhone screen.  Here are some screen shots of the applications.

There are a number of books available and I found the best way to find them was to search for “tapstack” using the search function in the appstore.

Now, you can continue your personal growth whenever you have some exra time that would normally have been wasted.
