thoughts for project 2
http://www.visualcomplexity.com/vc/ - like the title of the website states... some of the complexity of these were just really incredible
http://manyeyes.alphaworks.ibm.com/manyeyes/visualize/average-world-oil-reserves-billion - on this site it allows you to choose data and then choose what type of way you want to visualize it. The interactive part is fun although the outcomes don't seem all that interesting, and some just don't work.
http://blogof.francescomugnai.com/2009/04/50-great-examples-of-infographics/ - this site i especially enjoyed because of the bold colors and quarky ideas they used to visually display the data. The 'made in China" one especially amuses me.
http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/ - i like the simplicity of some of the data displayed such as the twitter one at the bottom. some are really funny.
