“Rich men are marrying rich women, creating doubly rich households for them and their children. And the poor are staying poor and alone.”
Visual.ly has rolled out a few tools to let you make easy infographics with the Twitter and Facebook API here: http://create.visual.ly/ It’s great that these tools make it easy to visualize data for people who aren’t as design-inclined, but I’m curious to see the scope of design flexibility that these tools will offer (kind of like ToutApp’s Your Year in Emails — great data, fixed design)
Here’s a cool and quite effective infographic on the republican nominees. Again, its the NYTimes data viz department doing a great job. Check it out here (no clever images to go along with it, unfortunately).
I dunno if anyone’s seen this yet, but it’s a pretty clever little tool. Although I haven’t used it, from what I understand it basically provides a WYSIWYG editor for infographic creation (just what we need, more people producing infoporn!) What’s especially cool in my opinion is the level of interactivity they allow. Click on some of the examples near the bottom to check it out.
