an "amateur’s critique" of the various infographics that appeared of the Super Tuesday elections. in search of a helpful at-a-glance snapshot of the results, Alex Vollmer, lists & analyzes the information diagrams of The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Public Radio, CNN, USA Today & MSNBC.

btw: infosthetics is also looking for some footage of CNN's "Magic Wall". did it demonstrate how multi-touch interaction can augment information visualization?

The CNN magic wall was alluring!

However, multi-touch sensitive or not, the representation behind the fancy not-quite-minority-report interface was a trainwreck. CNN's graphic strategy was downright strange. Me personally, I *don't need* to see stars racing across the top of the frame while results trickle in.

Thanks for the link!
