Information Design and Graphics

While unrelated to most of the content of this site, I’d like to call your attention to David McCandless’ blog Information Is Beautiful (about graphics and data visualization) and in particular to a very nice piece on What Makes Good Information Design? – in particular the key dimensions of Interestingness, Integrity, Function and Form. Obvious in some ways, but still worth considering. Read the comments as well – there’s some worthwhile discussion in there.

He also has a few items related to medical statistics, one of which I’ve passed along to customers: How Safe is the HPV vaccine? (admittedly a controversial subject, as reflected in the comments).
