Art Or Information?

Here's an example from Go Figure titled The Past and Future of Information. I say "sort of" because no numbers were used to create it. It is openly unscientific.

Brilliant, say some. Meaningless, say others.

"The fuss is partly because it reignites a row between those who think data visualisation should have some data in it, particularly if it looks as if it's a graph, and those who think it has merit if it simply captures feeling or ideas in a compelling design."

And if you like that - check out the OECD Factbook eXplorer website.
