“Most Popular Infographics you can find around the web”by designer and illustrator Alberto Antoniazzi.
I don’t like to swear, but that graph is fuckin brilliant.
(A wordle with 1) the line “posted by …”, and 2) the words “comment”/”comments” and “filed under” removed. It needs a java plugin to view.)
Brilliant, indeed. But if we ask “which one doesn’t fit?” I’d have to say the Periodic Table of the Elements, which shows up everywhere because it is such a useful infographic (if that’s what you want to call it).
I even have the Periodic Table on a t-shirt, which I wear periodically.
No—they’re talking about the Periodic Table of “something.” That’s the infographic that is in the form of the periodic table but not displaying the elements. Here’s an example which I found in a quick google search. As with the other examples above, it was a clever idea the first time somebody did it.
Thanks. I’d not previously seen a “Periodic table of something” but given your example I now agree it earns its place in the Pantheon.
BTW, the new AMA Amstat News has a “tube map of something” on the front cover. Part of the map is shown in the web version:
I was being ironic with the wordle but ….
I actually thought it was quite interesting because in the centre it had a cross of “people”, “data”, “think”.
And “people” wasn’t a word I thought would have been highlighted that much in a statistics blog.
This is probably coming from a bunch of sentences like, “I hate when people think . . .” and “People think they know about data but really they don’t . . .” and “Data show that people today can’t think . . .” and other sorts of curmudgeonly thoughts.
