This presentation opens with a screening of Humanexus, an award-winning semi-documentary that visualizes human communication from the Stone Age to today and beyond. The film aims to make tangible the enormous changes in the quantity and quality of our collective knowledge and the impact of different media and distribution systems on knowledge exchange. It follows a presentation and discussion of recent collaborative work on scholarly communication and collaboration. Last but not least, everyone will be invited to explore the Information Visualization MOOC and to visit the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit on display at Rice.
