At the risk of repeating myself from my other blog...... I would like to say that Gapminder are my most favourite people when it comes to information graphics. They did to graphs what McVities did to biscuits...... (chocolate hobnobs, need I say more?)
If you didn't get a chance to check out the interactive graphs, please do.
You can also watch a program he did with the BBC called "The Joy of Stats" on his website.
I started blogging over at my other blog 18 months ago and this was one of my first posts. I have decided to repeat it here as it conveys what it is I want to do.
In a simple form, it tells of how children's lives have changed over the past four generations.
I have, for a long while, been a lover of all things related to information and graphics. My hope is that the revolution we are seeing online with regards to visuals/transparencies/data visualization and such will roll over into Landscape Architecture and inform and influence all.
So, while I would like to think of myself, like many others, as an information architect, I hope when I grow up I can be an information landscape architect as well.
