Found on Wikipedia, this is the timeline of what was "Cool" from 1500 A.D. through today. Apparently, the Beatles aren't cool anymore...

Another one from Beau and Alan Daniels at beaudaniels.com that I really liked. Superior Coffee is half blueprint, half illustration that helps communicate the Superior Coffee strategy of delivering a better coffee to customers and is used at trade shows. A good way to visually show the technical aspects behind a product.
A series of infographics to help the parents of a new baby...sort of. Some of these are very funny, but some of them are very odd.
These are apparently a series of images from the book Safe Baby Handling Tips, by David and Kelly Sopp.
Nicholas Felton (www.feltron.com) has created his own personal 2006 Annual Report, looking back at his life during 2006 and using maps, charts, timelines and facts to visually track his activities. With pages dedicated to photos, travel, drinking, reading and food, he plots out his one-year history.
The family took our first Disney Cruise this year, which was fantastic! Here’s a great cut-away graphic of the Disney Wonder, but the other ship, the Disney Magic is almost identical. This graphic is a little out of date, because some things have changed. The ESPN Skybox is now a teen area called The Stack or Aloft depending on which ship you’re on.
The ship is actually quite large, so the spacial representation of locations is really helpful. You can get turned around very easily.
From the University of Sydney, Bachelor of Design Computing website, See My Voice was a project by one of the students in the program, Andrea Lau.
SeeMyVoice - Social Information/Data Visualisation (or infovis). SeeMyVoice visualises chat transcripts stored by MSN Messenger. It aims to highlight people's style of chatting and increase understanding of our online social interaction. Each person is represented by a coloured wave which ebbs and fluctuates according to message length and the time taken between messages.Great job Andrea! That's exactly how IM conversations go.
This video is the introduction to the movie Stranger Than Fiction, full of infographics. It's been around for a while, but I thought I would share it too.
