Bloom.io: "Pop-cultural instruments for data expression and exploration"
Bloom.io seems to be an interesting platform and their tag-line is just fantastic.
"Our mission to bring you a new type of visual discovery experience is already underway. We’re building a series of bite-sized applications that bring the richness of game interactions and the design values of motion graphics to the depth and breadth of social network activity, locative tools, and streaming media services. These new ‘visual instruments’ will help you explore your digital life more fluidly and see patterns and rhythms in the online services you care about. And they’re coming to a tablet, media console, or modern web browser near you!"
Why do I blog this? it seems to be an interesting platform for what Fabien calls "sketching with data. The motivation from Bloom's team is quite relevant too:
""The ways in which people interact with computation are changing swiftly as we move into more casual relationships with our digital services on tablets, big screens, and across social networks. We believe we have some compelling answers about how digital experiences will evolve into these new contexts. Please, follow along with us and explore these playful, dynamic instruments of discovery together."
