FlowingData can even make the spread of nasty corporations* look gorgeous.  Visualizations like this put another nail in the coffin of paper journals.  My new project for the next three years: learn ActionScript.  Sorry, Beezy.

By the way, if you have any sweet geographic time-series data that you’d to see done up in this style, Nathan at FD would probably love to hear from you.  It’s just a matter of ramming the new data through the code – easily done, and it would add a little pop to your next presentation.

*Yes, I am one of those people.  But I have arguments that convince people of just about any political belief, so I feel justified.
