No sooner had the previous post gone up that I received an email request to share the infographic below. It took me precisely ten seconds to scan the material before I decided to embed the code.
I keep thinking about the increasing influence of the Infographic. Part of me continues to marvel at the human brain’s capacity to deconstruct complex data and disseminate it in an attractive, playful, visual format that my child could understand. The other part of me worries about the increasing difficulty we have in finding time to analyse complex material ourselves, and our increasing reliance on ‘data as visual entertainment’.
In the same way we are increasingly uncertain on what happens with the data we entrust to Google and Facebook, I just wonder whether the immediate future is going to be all about eye candy and ten seconds to absorb complex issues in between a sandwich break in front of whatever screen happens to be in front of us.
