This inaugural solo presentation asked an industry luminary to give a personal, provocative and inspiring state of the nation perspective on the advertising industry. This year ITV invited Richard Eyre to step into the spotlight: CEO and Chairman of the Internet Advertising Bureau, he has previously been CEO of ITV, Pearson Television and Capital Radio, Director of Content and Strategy at RTL, and was also BBH’s first media director. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
The current issue of the Statistical Computing and Graphics Newsletter features two invited articles, which both look at the “graphical display of quantitative data” – one from the perspective of statistical graphics, and one from the perspective of information visualization. Robert Kosara writes from an InfoVis view:
An Intimate Look at Infographics is a fun, satirical look at infographics from Think Brilliant that comes in the form of an infographic! A well done infographic has the power to capture one’s acute attention span and convey information that would have taken longer to simply read ( oh no, not reading! ).

Now that everyone knows what they are, forward thinkers are wondering what’s next for the infographic. Is this the beginning of a visual revolution, or is it another passing fad? This is an important question to consider particularly for those who are making large investments in the medium.
We’ve tumbled headlong into the era of infographics.
Now that Obama's dog has won the War on Christmas, or something, it's time to get down to a war that really matters: the war on terrible, lying infographics, which have become endemic in the blogosphere, and constantly threaten to break out into epidemic or even pandemic status.

La représentation graphique des données, une manière d'appréhender le monde qui ne date pas d'hier. Excursion dans l'infographie du début du siècle dernier, avec David MacCandless, d'Information is beautiful. Quand j’ai commencé à réaliser des infographies, j’avais une prétention assez simple.
Chose promise, chose due, voici les résultats de la 4ème édition de la traditionnelle Enquête Blogosphérique organisée chaque année par NWE! Je tiens tout d’abord à remercier les 1.354 blogueuses et blogueurs qui ont participé à ce sondage (soit 336 sondés supplémentaires en comparaison à l’édition précédente ) ainsi que tous ceux et celles qui ont relayé l’information via leur Blog, Twitter, Facebook ou autres.
En une seule minute, une quantité monstrueuse de données est échangée sur le web.
Ces derniers temps la mode des infographies semble gagner du terrain, et il est vrai que souvent une belle image vaut mieux que de beaux discours, puisqu’un seul coup d’œil suffit pour appréhender la situation.
The whiz kids behind Mint’s infographics, Stewart Langille and Lee Sherman are today launching the first startup that solely focuses on mass producing infographics, Visually . Users who visit Visually this morning can see over 2000 infographics uploaded by designers like Jess3 and Dave McCandless as well as upload their own in a myriad of topics ranging from Science to Sports to the Economy. In its first launch iteration, Visually has partnered up with The Atlantic, GOOD Magazine CNNMoney.com, Ebay, The National Geographic and others to provide infographics content in exchange for sharing links — On Visually each participating publication gets to upload its own graphics, which are embedded and shared using an code generated by Visually.
