ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
About 10 years ago, I designed information visualizations.
We would never have let this one get past round 2. This is a mess. It feels like the information is trapped in that box. It is unclear what the symbols mean, or the point of the information’s location in space.
I think there might be something important to understand in that widget, but it’s hard to invest the energy to grok it.
This is somehow both the least useful timeline I’ve ever seen, and the best graphic to ever grace the pages of Wired.
Why couldn’t they make it into its own page? It’s like 150px wide!
