A magazine made of infographics


what a great idea! A picture book for adults called IN GRAPHICS! I got mine last week and have been browsing through a bit. It is rather a pieace of art than a magazine and it comes along without any advertising. That is probably the reason for the high price: 22€. But it is worth the money since it represents a unique collection work that shows the whole power of infographics and various classic and inovative ways of commuicating information. One can find more than just numbers put into nice graphics. There is something playful in some of the topics like the average national anthem composed from 32 different anthems. Maybe this kind of content is welcomed by the reader who needs a little break from the otherwise demanding content that is too complex for just a quick look. The next edition is supposed to be published in 6 months, probably just enough time to thoroughly explore the 1st edition. By the way, the magazine comes completely bilingual in German and English.

One year of blogging


My blog gets one year old! Time for a resume. I did not manage to produce as much own content as I wanted. But at I did blog at least once per month usually several times per month. So far so good. We’ll see what the next year brings.

Here are some stats from the past year:

My blog got about 4-5 visits per day on the average. Best day was November 18th, 2010 with 30 visits.

The by far most popular post was: Map Critique – Population of People and Sheep in New Zealand
