Infographics, what’s not to like?

With the election looming and complicated stats becoming an even more integral part of the news media it seems a good time to see what everyone actually makes of infographics.

Personally, I am a big fan of infographics as they make potentially dry figures often seem really interesting, especially when presenting. Anyone who’s sat through a 100 slide presso of the same “3-d” ppt graph can surely empathise here. Equally as someone who hates excel (this is not looking good for Microsoft) i am intrigued by how they are acrually constructed.

Despite being a slightly wanky buzz-ter at the moment I think they just show a really nice way of looking at stats and any change from the dull powerpoint slides. The guys at certainly have the right idea!

Hell, they can also be fun!
