On Junk Charts this past week, I posted the slides for a talk given at New York University, jointly with Dona Wong, which summarized five years of blogging about charts.
As part of the research for the above talk, I found that U.S. readers accounted for about half of my page views, followed by Europe. So it was only fitting that the other three posts had an international, especially European, flavor. Many readers contributed to a discussion of the "spinometer" used in British elections. I offered an alternative visualization of the web of debt among the PIIGS countries. And I posted a McCandless infographic on multiculturalism, which may or may not be tongue-in-cheek.
