The reality distortion effect, 3 months on...

One of the things I've never talked about in this blog, mainly because I talked about it enough elsewhere, is the iPhone Tracking scandal and the bizarre reality distortion effect that went on during those couple of weeks back in April.

Mac Slocum finally managed to corner me at OSCON last week and got me to talk about things now everything has settled down.


Interview with Mac Slocum at OSCON

One of the things I mentioned during the interview as one of the really positive things to come out of the iPhone Tracking debacle is the visualisations from the crowdflow.net group. If you haven't already seen them, I'd encourage you to take a look at what they've managed to pull out of the data.
