"Effing Hail" is a cool web game you play in your browser from Intuition Games! The isometric animation is very reminiscent of the Royskopp video for "Remind Me". You control the wind to hold the hail in the air so it continues to grow in size before releasing it to crush the objects below.
Found on Information Aesthetics and a bunch of Tweets on Twitter!
Great visual ad by Flygbussarna in Sweden! Combining a physical construction of a bus made out of cars on the side of the road, a live webcam, and live infographic information on the website!
Every day thousands of cars are driven to and from Swedish airports. Every car holds only 1,2 persons on average which is to be compared with the Airport Coach that takes over 50. Needless to say, this makes no sense whatsoever from an environmental standpoint. To highlight this, an enormous bus was built out of 50 cars on the side of the highway to the airport. On the website, a live camera not only shows the installation 24/7 but also analyses the image and tracks each and every car going by. This data is then being used to highlight just how much emission we could save just by going by bus instead.

Great timeline infographic depicting the rise and fall of different browsers portrayed as knights marching across a field. The data set used is available here.
It took me a while to find any information about the author, but I found this description on the Wired.com blog.
Here's a creative look at the history of the browser wars from 2002 through mid-2008. The infographic was submitted to Reddit by a user named BovingdonBug. He says he created it as part of an application for a graphic design job on a newspaper.Thanks Alwyn for the link!
I had to post this one. TorrentFreak.com revealed that The Pirate Bay has quietly released a Google powered map site that shows the locations of the bit-torrent clients. Of course they carefully maintain the anonymity of their users.
You can click on the icon over a particular country to see their statistics. From everything I hear, I would have thought the U.S. to have more pirates...ARRRRR!
From TimGraham.net, Tim plotted out some statistics about all of the spam email he received in February 2008.
Tim, only 208.5 spam emails a day? You need to get your email address out into more public places!
Thanks for the link Alwyn!
