National Gruntledness Index


New interactive map on CareerBuilder.com charts the results of user survey data on how gruntled (or disgruntled) people are with their jobs across the country. You can even narrow the map results to a particular industry.

The map doesn't change that often, but when you roll your mouse over the map, it highlights the cities where the score has changed.

Thanks Kevin for the email.

Social Media Building

Another infographic advertisement from Elliance.com to share around your office. How do the different Web2.0 services available today address the different needs within a company? An ideal graphic to share with the people in your organization that don't really understand how they can use these new web services.

Elliance is posting a weekly series of infographics on their site to help explain their services.

Search Engine Optimization

Elliance.com is posting a weekly series of infographics to help explain and advertise their SEO services. These graphics talk directly to corporate individuals that want better websites, but don't design websites themselves.

A great way to use infographics to talk to your target customers, and I think it shows how well Elliance knows their target audience.

Thanks Christy!

The Life Cycle of a Blog Post


Wired magazine has this infographic flow chart of what happens after someone posts on their blog. From aggregators to text scrapers, your posts live a life of their own on the Internet.

You click Publish and lean back to admire your work. Imperceptibly and all but instantaneously, your post slips into a vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web.
It's on their multimedia section of the website, but the only multimedia aspect it has is zoom, which is a little disappointing.

Thanks Oliver for sending me the link!

Harnessing the Wind


From the Telegraph in the UK, the idea is to use a kite to help pull a ship across the ocean. by using the wind power at high altitudes the ship would save on energy consumption.

Its inventor, Stephan Wrage, a 34-year-old German engineer, claims the kite will significantly reduce carbon emissions, cutting diesel consumption by up to 20 per cent and saving £800 a day in fuel costs.

The Price of Gasoline

This image was real popular on Digg.com this week. It's hosted on tinypic.com, but there's no author listed.

I love simple infographics like this that use a visual metaphor to instantly get the point across. You can tell someone that the price of gas is comparable with Coke, but putting gas in the Coke signature bottle will get more people to understand the message.

My own reaction was probably the opposite of what the author intended. My first thought is "Coke costs how much?!?" I know there is a lot more expense in producing gasoline than there is in producing Coke. They must really be marking the price up a lot for brown sugar-water.

There is a similar analogy in the U.S. regarding bottled water. Some bottled water brands are now more expensive than gasoline! How is that possible?!?

Corporate Connections


I found reference to this graphic by Zohar Manor-Abel on smashingmagazine.com.

What is the connection between 3 celebrities, 35 corporations, 40 subsidiaries and more than 300 brands? Global business interests make up a complex network of connections between corporations from around the world. Corporate Connection, intends to shed light on 'who owns what' in the lobal marketplace and on the intricate nature of the world wide "business" web.
