Blog Blogging Tips Content Marketing Grow Readership B2B


If you are a blogger for a mid-sized company, or trying to build a B2B’s reputation, growing your readership is an ongoing objective. This is the same challenge that all business bloggers and individual bloggers struggle with alike.

I have always thought Twitter was a marvelous way to help grow your blog readership by helping others grow theirs. Bloggers supporting bloggers. That sounded like s stupid simple thing that any blogger would get behind. However, for whatever reason this wishful reciprocity only happens sporadically at best…until now.

Beaux-arts : les grands peintres à l’épreuve de la colorimétrie

The Brush & Lens Time:

Pegasus Data Project

Les pigments de Van Gogh, Gauguin ou Monet sont-ils solubles dans une étude colorimétrique ?

Dans une démarche plus artistique que scientifique, Arthur Buxton (son site : nous livre des tableaux tout à fait fascinants*. Mesurant les principaux tons de couleurs des plus grandes oeuvres d’un panel de peintres du tournant du XXe siècle, cet artiste les restitue sous la forme de diagrammes circulaires qui, réalisés en séries, nous offrent une vision inédite de la palette de nuances de leurs auteurs respectifs ! Finalement, une telle démarche relève bien d’une volonté de data visualization qui n’est pas sans applications possibles dans le champ de l’histoire de l’art.

Clé de lecture : les diagrammes reproduisent toujours les 5 couleurs principales des tableaux analysés.

Claude Monet (1840-1926)

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903)

Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)

Henri Matisse (1869-1954)

August Macke (1887-1914)

Uncle Sam Day

Uncle Sam

“I Want You”



Origin of Uncle Sam Day:

There are two theories as to how Uncle Sam emerged. Both date back to the early 1800’s.

The officially recognized theory dates back to soldiers stationed near Troy, New York during the war of 1812. Barrels of meat they received were stamped “U.S.” The supplier was Samuel Wilson of Troy, New York. Solders jokingly referred to him as “Uncle Sam”. In 1813, the first image of “Uncle Sam” appeared. In 1961, the U.S. Congress issued a resolution recognizing “Uncle Sam” Wilson, and authorizing a monument in his hometown in Troy, NY.

There is a second, less popular theory of the creation of Uncle Sam. During the early 1800’s, Irish immigrants were coming to America. Some believed that Uncle Sam emerged from these immigrants. In their Gaelic language, the United Stares of America was “Stáit Aontaithe Mheiriceá”, abbreviated “SAM”.

Uncle Sam Day became official in 1989, when a joint resolution of Congress designated September 13 “Uncle Sam Day”.  This date was selected, as “Uncle Sam” Wilson was born on September 13, 1776.
