Flashy interactive graphics in a scientific talk, realized

Following up on my previous post, I spent an hour hacking together my slide template with a little project called d3po, a hack from the recent dotAstronomy 5 conference that’s put together some demos presenting astronomical data with the d3 toolkit.

Here’s the result. It’s just a quick

simple hack showing that this is possible, which in a way isn’t too impressive since there’s absolutely no reason it shouldn’t have been. But it’s still fun to see everything work.

Source code is available in the documents themselves, since this is the web!
