The New York Times recently had an interesting piece on the changing daily Internet usage patterns in the US. The basic gist of the article was Americans are using the Internet more than in the past and starting to twitter / surf / email much earlier in the day.
Which made us wonder if Europeans are any different?
It turns out — yes.
We took a look using the Internet Observatory at daily traffic through roughly 40 North American and 25 European consumer / regional providers (taking the average of 10 weekdays in July).
We graph the daily average of European and North American Internet traffic below. To make the graph more readable, we show both European and US traffic as a percentage of their respective peak traffic levels (i.e. 100% is the respective peak of each Europe and US traffic). All times are EDT. The yellow shaded area represents daylight hours in Europe and the US.The New York Times recently had an interesting piece on the changing daily Internet... more
Republicans have recently released a terror-inducing visualization of how the Democratic health care plan will work. The chart's content has caused a stir in American politics but the strongest reaction came from the graphic design world.
Robert Palmer, a designer from California, has decided to recreate the chart and write a rather emotional letter - aptly titled "Do not f*ck with graphic designers".
"I think Democrats, Republicans, and independents agree that the problem is very complicated, no matter how you visualize it. By releasing your chart, instead of meaningfully educating the public, you willfully obfuscated an already complicated proposal. [...]
So, to try and do my duty both to the country and to information design (a profession and skill you have loudly shat upon), I have taken it upon myself to untangle your delightful chart."

At the site of the originating clip, you'll find some pretty cool links to a video charting all commercial air flights that occurred within a 24 hour period. Interesting stuff, for geeks like us.
Not surprisingly, it looks like flies swarming around a dead carcass, but that shouldn't stop you checking it out.
"Mario [the creator] points to Air Lines [lx97.com], an art project showing worldwide airliner routes on a world map. Every single scheduled flight on any given day is represented by a fine line from its point of origin to its port of destination. As a result, a net is formed out of thousands of lines. Hubs like JFK, FRA or DXB turn into dark knots where lines meet, lesser served local services are only are a subtle hint. The maps is also commercially available as a poster."At the site of the originating clip, you'll find some pretty cool links to a... more
