Portfolio Lecture

@ University of Regina March 11th 2016

Definition

An artist’s portfolio is an edited collection of their best artwork intended to showcase an artist’s style or method of work. A portfolio is used by artists to show employers their versatility by showing different samples of current work. Typically, the work reflects an artist’s best work or a depth in one specific area of work. (Wikipedia)

Definition Electronic portfolio

An electronic portfolio (also known as an eportfolio, e-portfolio, digital portfolio, or online portfolio)[1] is a collection of electronic evidence assembled and managed by a user, usually on the Web. Such electronic evidence may include inputted text, electronic files, images, multimedia, blog entries, and hyperlinks. E-portfolios are both demonstrations of the user’s abilities and platforms for self-expression, and, if they are online, they can be maintained dynamically over time. (wikipedia)

Apple Refuses to Hack a Backdoor on the iPhone

The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.

This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.

The company behind the iPhone refuses to hack backdoors for the iPhone in this appeal to the costumers. Their costumers need the security. The problem is not just the security of americans – but for everyone on the planet using software.

While we believe the FBI’s intentions are good, it would be wrong for the government to force us to build a backdoor into our products. And ultimately, we fear that this demand would undermine the very freedoms and liberty our government is meant to protect.

Good design, he suggests, is the best way to navigate information glut — and it may just change the way we see the world.” (Source TED)

Data visualization is a huge topic on TED. Here is a collection: TED Visualizations.
