Are visualisations essentially meaningless?
The internet is now saturated with infographics and visualisations. I’ve done my fair share of propagating this. So, at what point does this become meaningless clutter, rather than clarity cutting through the communication noise of the world wide web.
Who knows, but I’m starting to enjoy humourous visualisations more than the real thing… and so is the New Yorker.
You could do worse than perusing some of the efforts of this guy named Ben Greenman.
This one is actually interesting, though largely pointless.
