From Scores.org, a data-heavy Google(graphic) by Jess Bachman, Google’s Acquisition Appetite. Visualizing almost 10 years of Google’s acquisitions and investments, and there’s hardly a month that Google didn’t invest in something.
I like the multiple dimensions to the data. Three columns show how the acquisition helped Google, the colors of each acquisition show what assets were gained, an additional circle shows the value of the acquisition (if it is known) and of course the timeline aspect.
Great job Jess! I’d love to see you keep this updated somewhere.
