Facts are sacred: let them look fine and be of great use

"[Journalism is] going to be about poring over data and equipping yourself with the tools to analyse it and picking out what's interesting. And keeping it in perspective, helping people out by really seeing where it all fits together, and what's going on in the country." - Tim Berners-Lee

Never get round to checking all the blogs that are full of all the glorious information that continually spills from the internet... but thankfully today I came across the new Data Blog from The Guardian. (The above shows the work of David McCandless, one of it's regular contributors). Seems like it was launched only last week, so I feel this is a blog I can stay on top of.

Reminds me of something I'm presently doing which has the working title This is Sacred (Whether You Like It Or Not). It's going to take ages to do but the length of time is hopefully going to represent the amount of love involved. Bloody artists eh?
