A Day in the Life of Tech Workers – Los Angeles VS San Francisco [infographic]

In less than a year, I’ll be graduating with my master’s degree and looking for a full time job. Thanks to all the classes I’ve taken in the past year, I’m hoping to pursue something that combines my love of media and technology. Now that the tough decision is out of the way, I find myself wondering where my job hunt will take me. Technology opportunities are everywhere, but one of the first places that comes to my mind is California.

Both California cities shown in the infographic below are considered to be two of the highest-paying for technology jobs. The average salary for a software engineer in San Francisco is $124,000, while the average in Los Angeles is $98,000. Although both sound highly appealing, it’s important to keep in mind other factors which play into career decisions. For many of us, these factors include the cost of living, how far or time consuming the commute is, what the weather is like, and even what activities are available for unwinding after work.

No matter which city you prefer, each of them have something special to offer. The question is, which would you choose?

In-Flight WiFi Prices [infographic]

If you haven’t been on a plane within the last decade, then you’re missing out. Not only have you not witnessed the experience of quick traveling, but also on the amazing technological advance which is the internet while flying. As human beings of the 21st century, internet at our fingertips is a must at all times, even if you’re barreling through the air 40,000 feet above the ground at 500 mph. You just gotta have it. Unfortunately, like all good things in this world, this internet usually comes with a cost. The infographic below compares the different internet prices from various airlines.

If you’re flying Hong Kong Airlines, jetBlue, or Turkish Airlines, then you don’t have to pay a single pound. (Which is about 34 cents in U.S. dollars… jk.) Free stuff is always good stuff. I guess it’s not necessarily free after purchasing the plane ticket, but compared to the prices that follow, I’d say it’s a steal.

If you travel a lot, it may be worth your dime to invest in a monthly pass via U.S. Airways, as they have the cheapest monthly rate for internet. I understand that other factors such as quality of service (Most people are loyal to a single airline because of service, which is perfectly understandable. I always fly Southwest.) and cost of plane ticket are factored into which airline you’ll choose, but it’s worth looking into. If you’re a frequent flyer, you could save yourself as much as $120 a year traveling with U.S. Airways.

There’s many more options to choose from, but I’ll let you check them out for yourself. Have a good day! [via]

P.S. I really hope somebody is reading this while flying in a plane.

Self-Portrait [infographic]

Today’s post is some stunning work by South Korean artist Minjeong An. This is by all means an infographic, but it’s also a work of art which must to be taken into consideration when analyzing it. This is not meant so much as a tool for education, but a vehicle of self-expression. Although everything is drawn out and labeled so intricately, the meanings are not so implicit – they have to be derived with intuition.

So what we have is essentially a blue print for the artist’s self. Qi (chi) is a principle prevalent in many Asian cultures that proposes that the body is composed of different flowing energies. The influence of this concept on how Minjeong perceives herself is undeniable. At a glance it may come off as very analytic and sterile. Upon closer inspection you’ll see that the clean mathematical language is actually being used to display things that are a little more messy, visceral emotions and memories.

The commute can often set the tone for how your work is going to flow. It is important to think about what is going to inspire your work day. Try listening to a thought provoking audiobook or grooving to some inspirational music. Plan ahead while allowing yourself to get to work a little early so you have time to adjust.
