Day #138:The Aquabats – “Nerd Alert”
For all the things being done these days to make the boring seem more interesting, my favorite may be the invention of infographics. That’s where they hand over the math to designers who are tasked with presenting data in creative and meaningful ways. Infographics have become mainstream, illustrating facts on just about everything under the sun, and some days, I’ll pour over them the way some do with Wiki. Unless, of course, it has something to do with Star Wars. I especially liked this infographic from the Daily GIF Blog, which sensibly animated the trendline in its visualization of music consumption over the last 40 years.
