We’ve said it before – we love information presented in unique ways. Nathan Yau collects compelling charts, tables, and other ways of visualizing data from across the web at FlowingData. The infographics range from the serious (a pie chart of Iraq rebuilding funds that are accounted for vs. unaccounted) to the entertaining (a recently popular entry is how to win at Rock Paper Scissors).
This flow chart is critical for anyone who has seen Inception and is still trying to figure it out.
Beyond the entertainment value, Yau’s blog does a good job of showing how some complex topics can be understood much more quickly by glancing at a chart than reading a page of copy.
