Infographic from the NY Times (I know, ironic isn't it?) that shows the drop in circulation of major newspapers across the U.S.
Heavy debt has dragged several newspaper companies into bankruptcy. The industry’s dwindling revenues have forced some money-losing papers to close, and papers that are for sale are having trouble finding buyers. Experts say that before long, a major American city could be left without a daily paper. (Related Article)Found on Twitter from @edial
Nathan Yau over on FlowingData.com has done a great job creating an animated map showing the growth of Target stores across the U.S.
Well, fortune was smiling on me last week, and I got a hold of data for Target opening dates and locations (thnx, Cole). So here it is - a map that shows the growth of Target from 1962 through 2008.Nathan has promised to combine the data from this map with his previous work mapping The Growth of WalMart, into one map where you can see the differences. So we'll keep our eyes out for that.
Great little video from Michael Reissinger on the need for innovation and consumer interactions in today's marketing world.

From Wired.com. I like that this History of Apple isn't your traditional timeline. It does go from left to right, but the images are mixed and overlapping. It show a clear progression from beige to colors to white to silver. The style also invites the viewer in to explore the details hidden in the image and find the extra images that specifically tagged with a date across the top.
The original Star Wars has certainly gone on to produce more than just sequels. It has created the people and the technologies that are now considered the best in the industry. Michelle Devereaux created this family tree for Wired magazine back in 2005 and I love how the line colors indicate people, technologies and company connections, but the tree is organized into movies, sound, effects and technologies.
I actually believe the tree is incomplete. I think Star Wars had far greater reach and influence that what Michelle mapped out here.
It all started with a band of rebels who wanted to help a farmboy follow his dream. Three decades later, the Star Wars empire has grown into one of the most fertile incubators of talent in the worlds of movies (Lucasfilm), visual effects (Industrial Light & Magic), sound (Skywalker Sound), and videogames (LucasArts). Along the way, some of the original Lucas crew has gone on to become his biggest competitors. This chart maps the people, companies and technologies touched by the Force. - Michelle DevereauxThanks Alwyn!
Our friends over at XPLANE have done a fabulous video explaining what led up to the recent credit crisis in the U.S. economy. A great job simplifying a complex problem.
Thanks Parker, and great job to your team!
I won't claim to understand or attempt to explain the math behind the investolution.com charts that predict the overall stock market for the next 40 days.
This page contains the prediction for S&P 500 Index minimum and maximum daily closing prices over the next 40 trading days.
It is predicted that S&P 500 Index will not close under 1,178 and over 1,295 between the dates September 19, 2008 and November 14, 2008. This prediction method was accurate for 71.0% and 95.0% of the cases (for minimum and maximum predictions, respectively) within an error margin of +-5% in the past.
Thanks Andrew for sending in the link.
