isomorphismes is right, people HATE things that look good. Should be a bar chart 😉

Seth Godin doesn’t like it? Is that supposed to ionfrm my opinion on the Minard map somehow?Interestingly enough, I just earlier this week, albeit tangentially, in relation to military imaging/visualization. What interests me about the graphic is how well it handles geography, time, the data being tracked (number of soldiers) AND it works as a historical document. It functions on so many levels! I think it really merits all the attention it continues to receive.I do find it a little strange that infovis enthusiasts fall back on the same point of references over and over and over when discussing the field. Oh look.. The Dumpster again. Oh.. wow Textarc, I’ve only seen that project 24 times a year since 2001.. but I guess graphic and design culture can be a bit like pop music at times in that the chosen (and often prescient) few become the anointed ones.

People love things that look good, obviously. It may not matter whether it’s chartjunk or deft Tuftean data-display.
