It describes the daily variations on the number of quotations for the top 2 more mentioned candidates, Dilma and Serra. It also points out “of the curve” campaign or media events that took affect on the twitter chattering.
Norton Amato Jr. and his team were gracious enough to translate it into English for readers of Cool Infographics, and here is the original:
Big thanks to Norton and his team! Great job!
I love the Hans Rosling videos from TED. This new video “The Good News of the Decade?” comes from TEDxCHANGE in Sep 2010.
Hans Rosling reframes 10 years of UN data with his spectacular visuals, lighting up an astonishing — mostly unreported — piece of front-page-worthy good news: We’re winning the war against child mortality. Along the way, he debunks one flawed approach to stats that blots out such vital stories.
I love how passionate and excited he gets about statistics!

The third installment of Pixar’s Toy Story is making a killing at the box office (rightfully so, because it’s Pixar-tastic), but not all trilogies have the same luck. They can’t all be Lord of the Rings epics (all over 90% fresh), unfortunately.
Who knew Free Willy was a trilogy?!?
From Milo.com, Which Retailers are Closing their Doors? is an infographic showing which retail chains in America have closed the most locations.
Although the recession is technically now over, it was not without its victims. And while independent mom-and-pop stores certainly suffered, many chain stores across the country also felt the heat. Few retailers were safe from layoffs and store closings, but the entertainment and apparel industries in particular seem to have bore the brunt of the pain. Below are the retailers that had no choice but to close some, or all, of their doors.

In something of a Data Underload, special edition, I played with famous science fiction quotes for Sci Fi Wire. My favorite is obviously from Back to the Future, the greatest movie of all time.
This is a very comprehensive, detail-heavy infographic designed by Carol Zuber-Mallison at ZM Graphics for InfographicsWorld.com. Including map data, a timeline, a few pie and bar charts, a schematic of the different fix scenarios and a visual of almost 4,000 squares.
“I usually do print work; this is my first piece specifically for social media. It just kept getting bigger and bigger as things continued to get worse in the Gulf.
I built it in four frantic days. There’s some things O would have done differently but when you’re working that fast you’re just putting stuff together with prayer and duct tape. Design takes a back seat to trying to get the information right.
This is an ongoing news event so things are constantly changing and I hope to update it at least once a week. (If you’ve found an error, please e-mail me so I can fix it.)”

From PCWorld.com, the Visual Field Guide to Fanboys is a humorous look at techie fanboys of all types.
What is a fanboy? Here’s one definition from the Urban Dictionary: “A passionate fan of various elements of geek culture (e.g. sci-fi, comics, Star Wars, video games, anime, hobbits, Magic the Gathering, etc.), but who lets his passion override social graces.”
For each one we give you 14 key attributes, such as what sort of clothing they wear, what they drink, what they drive, what turns them on, and what enrages them. We give you just enough to differentiate between species quickly and accurately.
