A set of charts I made with Tableau. Some of them are interactive!
This map shows a 5,700-year timelapse of the world's cities being born one-by-one, starting with the first known city, Eridu, in 3700 BC. The data is from one of the coolest academic studies I've come across in a long time, which compiled a comprehensive dataset of the world's cities and their historic populations, from 3700 BC to 2000 AD.

I have completed a new fun data art project: I translated the ups and downs of the S&P 500 for the year into a reggae-ish song, while an animation represents the data visually and in sync with the music. It's been a record year for the S&P 500 -- and now you can hear it! [more inside]
I did some data visualization of hockey stats, with a couple blog posts. It's all using 2013 regular season data. [more inside]
An animated data visualization I designed in association with CNNMoney went live this morning. It shows and compares salaries for different people (Kobe Bryant, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, a minimum wage worker, a physician, etc), accumulating in real-time for 1 minute. Watch the disparity grow second by second!
With the accompanying infographic-heavy blog post, it does what it says on the tin and more. Tracks your keystrokes, makes beautiful pictures and surprising observations from the data. Open source, and you can download 50 days of my data. [more inside]
