An Intimate Look at Infographics

Dave Fields explains how the rash of internet infographics from the past couple of years differs from ...well, from what they should be.
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!). However, for every brilliantly thought out and well executed mashup of art and data, there now seems to be an influx of mundane and formulaic counterparts infesting the very internet that we hold so near and dear.

Here we have an infographic that explores commonalities between the seemingly vast expanse of contrived infographics that appear to have spawned in mass over the past year. If you’re an infographic purest, view at your own risk.

Yep, the rest is in the form of an infographic that manages to be more entertaining than most. Link -via Rue the Day

Exactly what Alex said. I don't even bother any more for the most part, unless it's directly from an artist. A lot of them are severely biased and I've seen some so poorly put together they have stuff duplicated or in total Engrish.
