This won't change until info-designers educate folks on their field and what makes a good vs bad info graphic.

Thx for your talk on persuasive visualization and the discussions afterwards at the See Conference. It was good to leave with the hope we can still change the world a little for the better if we can make people read numbers better.

Understanding the numbers we live by is empowerment.

Love it Number of people who were attracted and read this infographic blog as opposed to if it were body text only: All of us!

It's funny because it is true. It seems ridiculous that 99.9% infographics are descriptive. To my mind the best ones are the ones with some text which explains what the cause/result is.

Proper Data Presentation Architecture (see wikipedia) is about excellence in data visualization but also about finding interesting information in raw data through mining, analysis, and understanding of what questions the audience has (or goals they have that can be supported with info). So I love how this example shows poor understanding of what is valuable information, unsophisticated use/digestion/analysis of the data that WAS chosen (without any thought to purpose or value), and really, really sad presentation (visualization, audience targeting and clarity of point, purpose or intended effect).
SUPER funny. I love it.

You don't suggest reading a table filled with numbers is better than even the most simple chart, do you?
