Power of a simple bar chart
January 2, 2013
A key source of inspiration for many modern app developers is Bret Victor’s musings, sketches and prototypes. Gabriel Florit, a designer at the BostonGlobe.com, shared some of his work in a Boston Data Visualization Meetup that he summarized succinctly as “I saw Bret Victor’s talk, Inventing on Principle, and I built something.”
At Protobi, one of our inspirations is Bret Victor’s reimagination of a New York Times infographic as an elegant sequence of interactive bar charts. Wouldn’t it be great to instantly create an interactive graphic like this from any dataset, big or small? And embed it in your blog, website, or marketing report.
