Two dimensions are better that one...

I've for a long time made the point that we're living in a 1-dimensional world when it comes to displaying data. Newspapers and magazines displays tables, barcharts, and piecharts - but nothing more. In the back end of the Economist you might see a scatterplot, but in the WSJ, Financial Times, Washington Post, you name it, we'd never see anything more interesting than the most simple depiction of data.

So what a pleasure to see NYTimes being gutsy enough to not only try but also keep up an interactive display of the stock market. If you haven't seen already - definitly do so!

You will find it in the business section of the NYTimes

Thanks for pointing out the cool visualization tool on the NY Times. Passed it on to my friend, who in turn pointed out two more similar tools:
One for news;

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
