>Something "Infosnacky" for a change


I don’t blog much about the data and stuff anymore, working on parking and transit issues takes up most of the blog time I have.

But I saw this and wanted to share. What a fantastic presentation of data.

Some really interesting things going on there, click on any profession and it will expand, you can type a search, breaks down by male/female, etc.

For example, type "fa" and look at what happened to farming. It used to take about 50% of the US workforce to grow crops, now it’s down below 2%.

What’s an "operative", by the way? There sure were a lot of them in the 1960s and 1970s.

    >Interesting. That looks like the exact same visualization style as in Baby Name Wizard's NameVoyager, but this is an OSS flash library, whereas I believe NameVoyager was something in Java.
