WATCH: David McCandless Talk the Beauty of Data Visualization. “Data is the New Soil”

This is something comics readers have known forever. It’s no accident that data visualization works as a simple, yet complex, way to get useful information across efficiently.

Below the jump, some info-graphics featured in the TED Talk that stirred our curiosity.
