13 June 2007


My friend Susan Orr pointed out to me this evening that Demos and the Institute for Policy Studies recently have launched a collaborative web-based resource Inequality.org. The site provides lots of (down-loadable) data graphics, news, and other resources on, you guessed it, economic inequality in the United States. This seems like a terrific undertaking. My only suggestion would be that they have a look at Ed Tufte's [1] [2] [3] writings on data graphics and work toward a higher information to ink ratio.

P.S.: You can find a recent encomium on Tufte in New York magazine. Thanks 3QD!
