Fast Company visual of the day

I totally love how visualizations are becoming more mainstream! Bless the world for finally acknowledging that a huge percentage of people follow the visual learning modality (I’ve heard anywhere from 20-70% if counting partial/blended learning styles). So, with that known, it doesn’t surprise me that Fast Company has a daily visualization on their homepage. In the upper right hand corner, no less!

Anyway, I point out today’s edition because it strikes me how good visualizations can be both informative and artful. Don’t these maps remind you of pointilism? (I also find it interesting that I’ve lived in at least 2 of the more mashed up racial areas in the midst of the seas of white people – Brooklyn and suburban MD, cool! Thanks for the confirmation, yo!)
