The first infographic I read was on the subject of crowdsourcing. I was entertained and informed. I also felt that this was a clever and creative way to present statistics and other information.
In my search to discover the origins of the modern infographic I learned from Wikipedia that the first infographic was a cave painting… right… helpful.
From my own observations then, these [modern] infographics are enjoying a surge in popularity. They seem to have started more poster-like and I’ve seen interactive (flash) infographics but my personal favorites are the long graphics that tell a story as the user scrolls (and scrolling is the only input required of the user). I find them a great showcase of the graphic designer’s talent and the most digestible presentation of the information.

A private liberal arts college, Seton Hills, has announced that as a part of their Technology Advantage Program, every student as of September 2010 will receive an iPad … in addition to the 13″ MacBook laptop they already receive.
From the Seton Hill site:
Beginning in the fall of 2010, all first year undergraduate students at Seton Hill will receive a 13″ MacBook laptop and an iPad. You will have complete access to these mobile technologies for classes as well as at all times for personal use. After two years, Seton Hill will replace your laptop with a new one – one that you can take with you when you graduate! With this technology at your fingertips, you can create a just-in-time learning environment, stay in touch with professors, advisors, and classmates, research any topic at any time, engage in hybrid and fully on-line courses, and access a whole host of Seton Hill technology services. In doing so, you will be learning the technological skills you’ll need in the twenty-first century workforce.
In the announcment, the private liberal arts university said, “Students will be able to download their textbooks to their iPads from the iBook Store. In addition, iPads can be used as phones and for air and file sharing, as well as note-taking.”
Anyone else think its time to change schools?
