Weekend Fodder

March 7, 2010  |  Quicklinks

Footprints - Every building footprint, and nothing else, in Montgomery County, Ohio. It's interesting how buildings can define an area.

Data, data everywhere - The Economist reports on the explosion of big data and the challenges that come with it.

Q&A With Shawn Allen of Stamen Design - Always interesting to hear from these guys [thx, tim].

The Case For An Older Woman - Another thoughtful analysis from the okcupid group on why men should be more open-minded to dating older women.

  • I enjoyed the “zone of greatness” plot in the okcupid link mostly due to its title:

    a freehand oval and some rhetoric vs. stuff you’ve already seen

    A very accurate description of the contents. Not misleading. Kind of funny. Maybe not the best example of pure data visualization, but I do enjoy a light-hearted approach when appropriate.
