Intelligent internet design

This is another graphic from the New York Times that plays to the strengths of the internet, that is to say takes advantage of interaction to present a large data set in a small space. And by considering the editorial points they want to raise they’ve put the pauses in the appropriate places, letting it run in between, and the movement of the dots tells a story in itself.

I want to do work like this! Clean, concise, intelligent, considered, informative. And the attention to detail – like the the clacking of the date as it clicks through time.
