Here is my new favourite toy. Have a play when you have a spare hour. Quite apart from its elegance and beauty as a means of displaying information, it reminds me of the potential of new technology and the astonishing generosity of the people that design it and make it openly available for all to benefit from. It’s an antidote, however temporary, to cynicism and jadedness.
Just time before I leave for Brussels for a nice little animation from the brilliant people over at Information is Beautiful. Clever, simple to understand, visually brilliant, and always thought-provoking. Just a shame about the music. More on my trip to the UK after I get home….
