Tech Notes

A test of a static Many Eyes visualization:

And dynamic (script may get blocked:
This is an attempt to post a photo from Photoshop and add a title and see if it’s centered or needs line breaks <br />.

Here is my Google map I showed briefly. (WordPress is buggy with iframes, though): View Food near my place in a larger map OK—here is the map I did with Batch Geocode. Note I didn’t get the Data (list of addresses) that I thought I’d asked for. Here again is the Excel file I made (Save a copy). And after you make one, they send you an email with embed code and some other options, so here is that (no e-mail yesterday). Next, here is a link to recent crime reports in our ZIP code from the EveryBlock project (now MSNBC). Not surprisingly, they don’t allow you to embed their maps. Take a look through the public records they link to. Finally, here is a chart I “created” at IBM’s Many Eyes project. The data were already there (you have to join to upload new data), but they come from the US Census.
February 20, 2013: See these links for how to post audio and use SoundCloud. For posting to WordPress, you need to FTP the MP3 file to alpha.lasalle.edu (remember PSWD = 12345_abc). For SoundCloud you’d need an account and then upload to their site.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

You can also try adding some HTML color codes to the end of your shortcode (test this on your WordPress.com). The code after the 0X is RRGGBB (2 red, 2 green, 2 blue), so I used  |bg=0x0000ff|righticon=0xcc0033 ] which makes the background 0000ff=blue (small line shows through) and the right arrow cc0033=red . Compare the first one to the standard player:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Paste your WordPress shortcode into the Visual editor (not Text). It will look like this (my code has audio:)

[audio http://yourfileswebaddress ] No space after the first [ but one space (no more) before the final ]. Note if there is no space it assumes that the ] is part of your URL, so the player can’t find the file.

Be sure to put your exact URL in (Q: what will that be?) after you FTP the file to the alpha server. Don’t use the example from WordPress (it’s mattmullenweg-interview.m4a Q: Who is Matt Mullenweg?). See if you got a Playlist editor.

Back this up with a standard link: Play audio.
