Interesting project proposal from former TechCrunch editor Erick Schonfeld to fix the many shortcomings of the current infographics craze.
1. What do you propose to do? [20 words]
Create a data visualization platform for blogs and news sites that takes the pain out of creating interactive infographics.
2. How will your project make data more useful? [50 words]
Infographics are very popular on the web, but most of them aren’t very good. The information inside them is trapped. They tend to be flat files, unsearchable, and most are not interactive. This project will make it easy to turn data into beautiful interactive charts, graphs, and other visualizations.
