I like the way the people who made this infographic assume that nothing comes before the infographic. (What? They couldn’t even be bothered to read Tufte’s book?) And don’t get me started on their normalizing the Google Ngram results so that the top result is 100 and everything ranges from there. Still, somehow this thing was compelling. Maybe because it argues for how good infographics are at communicating vital information without really having that much information itself?
