Visualizing Information

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

Man, it was fun to draw Zip wearing lederhosen. He looks pretty sharp, right. :)

On a different note, IBM has an interesting website called Many Eyes which has a bunch of different models for visualizing large amounts of data. It’s semi-comic related, I think, in that part of a comic artist’s job is to either interpret or kickstart the visualization process of a story for the reader. The word tree visualizations on this IBM site are way fun. Check out the number of times people use the phrase “I don’t recall” in testimonies, or the number of times specific words appear in a Shakespeare play.

In typical internet fashion, I stayed up far too late last night, clicking around on this site.
