Here are some good reading from other sites:
Harvard's Social Science Statistics blog reported on a talk by Amanda Cox of the New York Times graphics team, without whom this blog would lose a big source of inspiration.
Over at the Gelman blog, Aleks and Andrew discussed map-making, and as we often say here, picking the right things to plot is equally, or even more, important than what the graph looks like.
Some time ago, Andrew used a variety of graphs to look at the industry of predicting election results.
Dan Goldstein showed a graph that supposedly demonstrated the fallacy that we all think we are above average in the income distribution. I find it interesting in a different way: it showed that people who are very wealthy or very poor know their "place" so to speak but people in the middle have a difficult time knowing where they stand, which seems logical to me. Dan has previously written about graphs.
What other blogs are saying about us:
Infographics News: "You can agree or not with the author's point of view, but it's a good place to visit before making our next pie."
Opposed Systems Design: "This chart is just crying out for a Junk Charts treatment."
Happy holidays! As usual, I've updated my Wish List (link on the right): help build my library!
