Infographic: The complete and astounding history of storage

Geekologie's superb "Evolution of Storage" infographic traces the history of data, music and photo storage from the wax cylinder to the 2TB hard drive. I think I'll print this out and hang it on the wall of my office, for the same reason poets kept skulls on their writing desks*: "this too shall pass, all is hubris and folly, the future rushes up [...]

Neon Elmhurst Hospital sign burns out appropriately

Neon Elmhurst Hospital sign burns out appropriately

It was simply a case of the right bulbs going out at the wrong time. But passers-by couldn't be blamed for thinking a smirking prankster, or something much darker, was responsible when they looked up at the neon sign for Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, N.Y., which then displayed the ominous phrase "I'm hurt."

Left versus Right World

Left versus Right World

A concept-map exploring the Left vs Right political spectrum. A collaboration between David McCandless and information artist Stefanie Posavec, taken from my book The Visual Miscellaneum (out Nov 10th). Of course, the political spectrum is not quite so polarised. Actually, it’s more of a diamond shape, apparently. But this is how it’s [...]

This text and the one beside it are equal

People tend to have the misconception that making an anagram gets harder the longer the sentence is - the opposite is true. The longer a sentence gets, the more possibilities there are for making small re-arrangements in the anagram to fit the original text. See this famous anagram: To be or not to be: that is the question, whether tis nobler [...]

"Excuse me is there anything I could do you would pay me for?", "No, come on in"

I didn’t realize this was such a commonly used size in GIMP

The question is, do any modern printers support that format? Seriously. I think that it would be cool to print some novelty toilet paper.

Yahoo Answers makes me fear for the future of the human race

Yahoo Answers makes me fear for the future of the human race

Yahoo! Answers simply provides a permanent record of every possible inane, ephemeral question a ten-year-old might ask another ten-year-old. Well, and it provides an excellent forum for neckbeards to troll the aforementioned ten-year-olds, but that's another story. Little kids thought that Alaska was an island long before the internet.
