A guy named David McCandless put together some data visualisations for a talk he gave at TED. You can watch it here.

He also put together this cool “if Twitter was 100 people” visualisation that I’ve posted before (I think)…
And this one on caffeine and calories, that I know I have posted before.
Data visualisation is the future of communication – Christians need to think about how we can use it well to communicate the truths of the gospel.
