Mad Men Weekend

Mad Men is one of the most critically acclaimed shows on television, and several of us at Ranker are fans. It is returning for Season Five this Sunday with a 2 hour premiere.  So we did some Mad Men lists for your enjoyment:

 

1. The Very Best of the Mad Men Season 5 Poster Meme

Mad Men Season Five’s Promo Poster had ample blank space. This fostered some great subway, photoshop and street artists to take advantage. These are the top 20 Mad Men Season Five Promo Graffiti Posters.

 

2. The Hottest Women from Mad Men

The hottest “Mad Men” women are easily some of the sexiest women on television with their striking beauty and dangerous curves.

3. Top 20 Sexist Roger Sterling Quotes

One of the greatest things about AMC’s Mad Men is John Slattery’s depiction of the racist, sexist and utterly 60s businessman character Roger Sterling.

4. 25 Sexiest Jon Hamm Photos

Jon Hamm is on one of TV’s hottest shows, Mad Men, he’s also one of the hottest men. Jon played Don Draper, creative director of an advertising firm set in the 1960’s.

The Moral Psychology and Big Data Singularity – SXSW 2012

Below is a narrated powerpoint from a presentation I gave at South by Southwest Interactive on March 11, 2012.  The point of this presentation was to explore the intersection of technology and psychology, and hopefully to convince technologists to try to use our data to examine intangible things like values.  While the talk focuses more on psychology, many of the ideas were inspired by the semantic datasets we work with at Ranker.  Working with semantic datasets puts one in the mindset of considering synergy among different fields with different kinds of data.
