In a world of information overload, it's nice to get some visuals in with all those numbers. I despise pages upon pages of statistics and raw numbers...but put some cool graphics in there and my opinion changes as does my attention span.
In this TED talk David McCandless turns complex data sets (like worldwide military spending, media buzz, Facebook status updates) into beautiful, simple diagrams that tease out unseen patterns and connections. Good design, he suggests, is the best way to navigate information glut -- and it may just change the way we see the world.
Data is the new Soil.
