From aaplinvestors.net, more than a simple line chart of sales, its a timeline that highlights major events so you can easily visualize their impact. Even though its simple, I use this type of timeline all the time.

In the spirit of practicing what you preach, the team for the VizThink 2008 conference has created a visual guide to "Why come to VizThink 2008?". This graphic definitely has the feel of XPlane. David, did you guys create this one for the conference?
It's coming up soon! Jan 28-29 in San Francisco, CA. (VizThink link)
From VisualComplexity.com, here's a project that mapped out the Chicago Tribune Website using a Radial Grouping method. It was created by Graham J. Wills at Bell Laboratories, but it looks like the link to the original graphic is down.
NodeTrix was a study of social networks by Nathalie Henry, Jean-Daniel Fekete, and Michael J. McGuffin from France and Canada. Natalie presented their results at the InfoVis conference in Sacramento, CA in November.

The visual equivalent of a thesis - work from my final semester in Visual Communications.
From Paul Nixon on nixlog.com. In 2005, Apple finally released products from both the Mac line and the iPod line that reached the masses. This created the Tipping Point Effect that has rocketed Apple products and stock in the last two years. Rock on!
The Sweet Spot. Until January 2005, Apple had no iPod or PC products that served the mass market. With the launch of iPod Shuffle and Mac mini they have finally converged two product paths with the mass market in mind. This will not only drive more iPod sales (via the Shuffle), but also fulfill the promised "halo" effect of the iPod products as PC users jump to the Mac mini.Thanks to Karen for the submission
I came across this on Janine Swainston's blog:
The animated story of one man's epic journey, created entirely from public domain symbols. In other words, an airport story told in the language of airport infographics.
John D. Furber of Legendary Pharmaceuticals has put together a visual model of aging referred to as 'The 2007 Network of Biological Interactions in Human Aging' that shows the interactions between various subcellular, cellular, extracellular matrix and organ system. This is a great representation of aging as it demonstrates no root cause but rather a network of problem areas that are interlinked. The goal of systems biology would be to flush this out in great detail allowing one to zoom in down to the specific genomic and proteomic components of aging. Systems biology would also pursue such a model to have a functional runtime component to it such that variables could be tweaked and changes introduced to predict impact elsewhere in the various biological networks.
Newsweek has a cool interactive timeline showing all of the 150+ missions sent into space. Its organized by year (of course) but also by object of destination (planet/moon/asteroid). You can click on a year and zoom in to see specific dates of each launch. Rolling your mouse over any dot gives you the name and details of the mission.
