Well it's been a long week of other distractions rather than writing, but I have built up several things to link out to, so I guess a round of links from the web is in order.
Originally created by Ritwick Dey (and weirdly hosted on Flickr), the mock-up data visualisation of Dey's life has earned some serious kudos on Reddit and deservedly so. The visuals have an immediate impact and are just very aesthetically pleasing, even if (as many Redditors have pointed out) actually using it as your CV would be a quick shortcut to the reject pile. To be honest, I've been dabbling in something similar (though far simpler) recently, so found seeing the execution of, and reaction to, something much superior to my own attempts kind of fascinating.
Note: this was originally part of a full article titled "Spiders, Dinosaurs and CVs" and the 49th post in my New 52 challenge. That article also linked to Lucas the adorable arachnid, the trailer for Into the Spiderverse, the Wildlife Photo-Ark project, and an article looking into the history of palaeoart. For posterity, the opening paragraph has been kept above.
