Information is Beautiful

Posted by Andy

This has to be one of the most interesting sites I've come across in a long time. Not only does it take information from a collection of words and numbers and turns them into graphs, but it does it in a very attractive and cool way. With graphs showing you how to Reduce Your Chances of Dying in a Plane Crash to latest Swine Flu stats in a Google Doc to Mountains out of Molehills looking at moral panics
There is a a book to accompany the project. I won't say anymore as this post is about visualisation and not text - so with that in mind I will shut up.
