FlowingData

I tend to gasp when I see a well designed and up-to-date blog but I double gasped the other day when I stumbled upon Nathan Yau’s data vis blog FlowingData. This example where Nathan looks at a day in the life of Americans is pretty gobsmacking, as is his visualization for how many years you probably have left to live.

I particularly like that FlowingData posts are half visual extravaganza and half essay, so I’m excitedly adding this one to the ol’ RSS feed.
