« Minimalism as a form of abuse | Main | An unsuccessful adaptation of a classic »



I am firmly in the Alberto camp on this one, and I have to say it is disheartening to see some prominent people in the data vis community arguing against it (Robert Kosara, for example).

The re-design is no way perfect, and to be a fully realized presentation piece would warrant some clean up and care in the aesthetics, but the idea that the original makes it easier to understand the data is simply absurd.
