I pretty neat infographic on AirBnB getting to 1,000,000 reservations.

Done by their incumbent branding guru Christopher Lukezic (fellow NCAA athlete). Shout out to Berkeley for being the 3rd highest school associated with their bookings.

Pretty cool video my boyfriend made the other day.

Comedy and style mixed into one. Look out for future videos.

Hell Yeah! Go New York!

Congratulations to the state of New York! They did what California has yet to accomplish (*sigh*).

By passing the marriage equality bill, they effectively DOUBLED the number of Americans who can enjoy same sex marriage! New York's state population is 19,378,102 according to the 2010 US Census. The population of the other five states (Mass, Conn, Iowa, New Hampshire, Vermont) plus Washington equal 15,671,450. Impressive indeed!

On that subject, I thought it'd be a good idea to take a look at how national perceptions of gay marriage have shifted in just one year! 

Crazy that youngsters (18-34) changed 16%! In just one year! 
With the momentum from New York, expect these numbers to keep exploding! Great news!

state names according to twitter

A pretty fun infographic done by design taxi.

Takes all of the names people give to their "location" on Twitter (e.g. NYC = Gotham).

Check out the clever names people've come up with. My personal favorite: "gateway to alaska" and "miami of canada"

why pro athletes sleep so much

awesome article/infographic by Cliff Kung explaining what happens to athletes if they don't get 10-12 hours of sleep per week:


and another infographic calling out specific athletes and telling how much they sleep.
check out lebron and federer!


kung finishes the article posing the question - do athlets sleep so much b/c they need to be at their peak at all times. OR do they sleep so much b/c they have more free time than the general population?

I'd go with the former - you'd be surprised at how much athletes need to dedicate to their sport even when they aren't physically working out.

a youthful movement

a really cool infographic by the king of them - GOOD.

looks at young people who move to other countries and which % of them are educated.
the US attracts a lot of young people, but only a small percentage of them are educated (i guess i can be blamed for this as well). Compare that to Singapore which sees 3x as many educated people come in as opposed to those that want to leave.

rent or buy

Trulia put together a cool interactive infograph that tells people which parts of the country have better markets for home buyers.

as GOOD puts it: "The premium we Americans have put on home ownership almost certainly contributed to our current financial crisis, and the myth that you need to own a home to be happy is one that ought to be busted. That said, home ownership seems pretty attainable for people with stable jobs in a few parts of the country."
