Missing from this graphic: Any decent beer. (Okay, Guinness. But is it on tap or in a can? Because I think people willing to drink Guinness from a can should not be allowed to vote.)

"We are becoming numb to infographics. Not long ago, I saw infographics in my newsfeed as an informational ‘treat’ because I knew the author had used the medium only because it most effectively displayed the information," said Jasmine Bina of JB Communications in New York and Los Angeles. "But now that people have realized the traffic-generating powers of these things, every dumb report with an ounce of usable info is puffed into these massive images."
Gail Granger, who runs a communications firm in Winnipeg, was more blunt in her assessment of the infographic craze. “We used to have an attention span of about 30-seconds - the length of a commercial. Now it’s down to about five,” she said. “We are becoming a society of hyperactive, yammering idiots.”

I was going to read this, but I don’t have time. If someone could please make an infographic summarizing the argument, I’ll give it a glance. Thanks.

Artist Erik Kessels created an exhibit, on display at Foam in Amsterdam, that is a massive collection of every photo uploaded to Flickr in a 24-hour period. It’s stunning to see the volume of images as they literally pile up almost to the ceiling and pour through multiple rooms.

This seems to be getting a lot of attention online. I’m not sure I get why. Do people find it insightful? Or is everyone just marveling at the stunt-ish nature of the execution?
