Bacon spending has fallen by 0.2%! Is this the bacon backlash?

Thanks... I've found myself admiring the excellent NYTimes graphic work of late, like this animation of NASA's new Constellation spacecraft series (not, however, done by either Cox or Jaegerman, as far as I know...)

Note to others: if you see me in public with any of those traits common to those who hide handguns, it's probably because I have an awkwardly large camera lodged in some odd pocket. Please do not tackle me as a safety precaution. Thank you.

Googling around for Amanda Cox, I found a very detailed map of parking tickets in New York City for a year (link to review, which links to actual map). The amount of work put into things like this and The Ebb and Flow of Movies is impressive.

I have a similar problem, though I am not a photographer.

Graham Yves Roberts does this as well.

Don't forget, newspapers are dead, soon to be replaced by blogs.

Funny, I don't remember walking to the corner store and paying $1.25 then leafing through some pieces of paper to see these cool visualizations.

If you see me in public with any of the handgun traits, it's probably because I'm carrying around a large, loaded handgun. I'm also a well-dressed, angry chimp, so you can decide for yourself how to play it, I guess.

I hope they get paid more than the people I know who do freelance illustration for the NYT.

Wait, R. Mutt, you hope the people you now are getting screwed out of lucrative NYTimes monies? That's not very neighborly.

Amanda, Shan Carter, and Joe Ward created Paths to the Top of the Home Run Charts, which I liked.

I think I'm so drawn to great infographics because they have "quality" written all over them. They seem perfect.

These make me think of Radical Cartography

I love these graphics. Amanda Cox in particular is unbelievable. I'd love to learn what methods and techniques they have developed to turn out these tools.

These are awesome; I'd love to know how they learned.
