Ironic environmental-social infographics #Blame Twitter by Tim Cooley

This won the “Design the Future Infographic” contest run by Poster Brain. Congrats to the author Tim Cooley! He figured out mash up some real data from Twitter and socio-environmental statistics on a death-like scenario background.

The effect is pretty fun, as the numbers indicated are true, but not actually related to each other.

“It’s a classic example that correlation does not imply causation“- as Randy Krum says on its blog.

Quest’infografica ha vinto il concorso “Design the Future Infographic” di Poster Brain. L’autore ha pensato di mettere insieme alcuni dati raccolti dalle statistiche di Twitter con altri provenienti dalle recenti indagini socio-economiche… senza che i due mondi abbiano in realtà una correlazione!

Lo stile secco e cupo da fine-del-mondo non fa altro che accentuare l’ironia della cosa. Come commenta Randy Krum sul suo blog, questa è un’inequivocabile dimostrazione che “la correlazione non implica un rapporto causa-effetto”… Bravo Tim Cooley!
