InfoGraphic: Wikipedia Wars

August 12th, 2010 Comments off

This is really less an infographic about information and more a cautionary tale about the possessive and obsessive nature of Wiki-editors. Sure, some of these are downright funny, but some are also reflective of dissociative behavior patterns and, well, political battles.

InformationIsBeautiful.net has taken the data from Wikipedia and created a visualization thereof to show the online encyclopedia’s most heated debates. Some of which are actually about things other than UK English and Americanized English spelling conventions.

The Wikipedia entry for the lamest edit wars is, in and of itself, also a good read.

InfoGraphic: How Glenn Beck is hurting little old ladies

August 5th, 2010 Comments off

Glenn Beck is not a good person.  That shouldn’t come as any sort of a surprise to an intelligent individual who a) can think for themselves and b) has been exposed to the world at large through travels, news or talking to people not named Glenn Beck.  Unfortunately, the guy has a large and scary following who dogmatically listen to what he says.  This extends from politics to salesmanship.

There’s been a concerted effort (spearheaded by StopBeck.com and other websites) to pressure advertisers to dump Beck.  This has driven him to ingraining low-grade, ethically challenged advertisers like gold companies into both his programming breaks and his programming itself.  So little old ladies now a) still don’t believe that Obama is American and b) are getting hosed in their gold by telephone purchases.  The Big Picture has produced a solid infographic explaining just how.

The lesson learned is that if you’re going to trust a crazy person on Fox, that crazy person should be Sheppard Smith.  Click through for the infographic. Read more…

InfoGraphic: 17 things to know about DNA

July 29th, 2010 Comments off

Science + InfoGraphics = Win

Deoxyribonucleic acid is, quite literally, at the core of who and what each and every living thing on the planet is made up of. OK, so viri utilize ribonucleic acid (RNA) instead of DNA, and some theorize that the earliest earth life may have been based on self-replicating RNA instead of DNA, so it’s possible that more than just the common virus uses RNA still.

But that’s besides the point. All known complex life on Earth utilizes the computer-like coding of DNA to program its makeup. Instead of binary code (or, in binary: 01001001 01101110 01110011 01110100 01100101 01100001 01100100 00100000 01101111 01100110 00100000 01100010 01101001 01101110 01100001 01110010 01111001 00100000 01100011 01101111 01100100 01100101) like a computer, living organisms use a combination of adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G) and thymine (T) to program.

OnlineNursingPrograms.net has put together the below infographic to reflect 17 interesting things to know about DNA. Click through to enjoy! Read more…

InfoGraphics: John Wall and Tim Tebow (TheOnion.com)

March 29th, 2010 Comments off

The Onion has been king of satire for a very, very long time now.  Even in the age of John Stewart and Stephen Colbert, the Onion launched the superior OnionNewsNetwork.

One staple they’ve continued to run out is their mocking of The USA Today and its infographics.  After the jump, I’ve got two of their infographics from the Onion Sports Network, addressing those bastion of collegiate athletics: John Wall of Kentackalacky and The Lamb of God of Florida.
