Easily digestible data

Two examples of ways to present data in a new, palatable and engaging way online.

This is from Dow Jones Insight Election Pulse blog and illustrates domestic issues coverage across mainstream and social media in relation to the remaining US primary candidates. Thanks to Tim O'Reilly for the link.

It's a quick visual snapshot of who's connected to coverage of which issues. "Biggest one to note: Health care remains big for the Democrats (24% of all mentions) and small for the GOP (9%). The economy is No. 1 for everyone."

This is from the New York Times and shows box office receipts for movie releases since 1986. The image lets you click once for a small pop-up with more information and click again to read articles about the movie. The graphic itself shows weekly revenue plus how long it ran in cinemas.
