Information is Beautiful

What drew me to this site - information is beautiful.net - first was a map of the meaning of colours in different cultures. I was so fascinated that I printed out a copy for further study. Red - lots of red. Red is highly significant to humans, I think we can concur.

But then I got cruising around the rest of the site. Wonderful stuff. Like a visualization of the efficacy of popular supplements and vitamins. Or time travel in popular culture. The hierarchy of digital distractions (mobile phone trumps land line. Text message trumps email.) Way cool stuff!
