I love data visualization.

My friend and fellow blogger Harrison Brookie recently sent me this great TED talk by David McCandless. For those of us who love data visualization, it's a real treat. 

My favorite line in the talk is:

"There's something almost magical about visual information. It's effortless. It literally pours in. If you're navigating a dense information jungle, coming across a beautiful visualization is a relief. It's like coming across a clearing in the jungle."
