Great Moments in Data Visualization

A designer/engineer by the name of Ben Fry has an awesome site on which he posts interesting maps, charts, and other graphic delights. Of interest to this crowd are his graphs illustrating the connection between team payroll and performance. Key: a downward blue slope is good and an upward red slope is bad. Nats' fans will be happy to see that they are getting almost exactly what they paid for.

I found this via a link to something even cooler: a map he did of all of the streets in the United States which is going viral this week. Click over there and prepare to waste a hell of a lot of time today.

Link via Sullivan and Fark and a bunch of other places.
