Looking Forward: 2050 in the Eyes of the American Public

The start if the new year always has a way of turning our gazes forward. For some this is reassuring… for others, intimidating.

This reflective infographic  shows where the American populace stands on a variety of different issues that have taken center stage in the 21st century. For example, the ever-pressing issue of our abused environment. A very convinced 72 per cent majority believe that by 2050, there will be a global energy crisis.

Americans were much more optimistic about the next forty years of technological advancements.  A full 81 % foresee computers communicating the same way humans do. Many also see space travel for the common man as a possibility in 2050.

Looking at this infographic prompted me to question some of my thoughts on the future. The surveys were very revealing. The population is on the fence about more than a few things. More than half think another world war is on the horizon.

In such turbulent times, what do you think the next forty years hold?

Cheers everyone, have a phre$h new year.

Ten Types of Facebook Friends [infographic]

Having traveled across state lines for the holidays, I had a lot of time to catch up with my mom. She’d ask how this person is doing and what my ex significant other is up to. I usually didn’t have good news to report and when asked how I knew what I knew, the response was always the same answer. Facebook.

I’m sure you know the people of this technological era have no problems with disclosure whatsoever. The second a thought crosses one’s mind, it is immediately shared between 300+ people. When Jimmy’s bread has molded and Sarah realized she put on a few pounds, it is then made our business.

After doing so much social disection of the people of facebook, the infographic began to make more sense.
Every archetypal chracter that is my facebook storyboard is perfectly described. From the brown nosing, overachieving top ten percenter to the cutie you never found the courage to talk to. Seeing these people everyday can be annoying, even if it’s virtually.

Keeping with the theme of predictablity, count how many times “new year, new me” pops up on your news feed. Let’s see how many stick to their guns and don’t continue the trend of being one of the ten types of facebook friends.  [Via]

2011: The Year of Dubstep [infographic]

So who here is a fan of dubstep? I know you will probably hate me for saying this, but I’m not. Hate on me if you will, but dubstep isn’t my cup o’ tea. I can do techno, I enjoy a good techno, trance, house, hardcore whatever but dubstep’s WUBWUBWUBUWBUWUB is too much.

It seems to be a genre composed of one sound that is determined to outweigh the rest of the piece. I know you and I could have differing opinions on this, and we may have to just leave it at that.

The business side of dubstep is something I can believe in. Skrillex releases some of his work for free on the internet – that gets him brownie points. He also pulls in thousands of dollars when he packs a venue full of people to see a sight seen far too often in Starbucks: A guy with a laptop.

Dubstep may be a fad and be gone within two years, but there will always be those dubheads who WUBWUBWUB far into the future. [Via]

How to Spot a Douchebag [infographic]

Sup bro? Today Daily Infographic will be showing you how to sort out the douchebags from real people. I will start by admitting that I follow 3 of these 19 characteristics, and I’ll let you try to figure out which ones. (Hint: I hate pointless ‘cool-looking’ tattoos with no meaning.) If you only follow a few of these like me, I wouldn’t worry too much, you’re probably just borderline douche. However, If you follow more than 5 of these, people will most likely label you as a douchebag, and chances are you are one. But I’m not here to judge anyone. To all the douchebags out there reading: don’t worry brah, they’re just haters.

If you read this infographic and suddenly realize you’re a douchebag, don’t panic. There is a cure. True douchebags will never admit that they are douches, and if you simply admit to being a douchebag you are free from the disease. Who’s the douchiest douche? Post a comment below with your nomination and why. My nomination goes to Rick Perry. I will not comment on his political agenda, he simply has the best ‘douche face’. [Via]

The Designer’s Toolkit [infographic]

Computer users always have their preferred apps, products and brands, and most are fiercely loyal to said apps, products and brands. Take a look at the comments in the app store for an example of the fawning supporter and the enraged protestor. When I first got my Mac laptop (which now has a human name and is basically an extension of my arm), I spent hours researching the apps and products people use. Perhaps this analogy will only resonate with the Vogue-reading crowd out there, but it is the same idea as finding out what is in Natalie Portman’s make-up bag. If successful people swear by and application, I will probably hit “install” to see what the fuss is all about.

Today’s infographic takes you into the offices of 180 creative professionals to see what apps they have open. Small sample size notwithstanding, the results are educational. From word processing to storage to email– there are usually clear winners. I completely agree on Gmail, though I’ve never harbored much affection for Google Docs. What apps do you swear by and why?
