BC Property Values as a Tag Cloud in The Vancouver Sun

BC Property Values as a Tag Cloud

"The larger the letters, the larger growth in property values for 2006." Not shown as a bar graph or a pie chart but as a tag cloud. This is the first time I've seen this in non-internet media.

It is interesting to see Web 2.0 etymology/folksonomy filtering into the real world.

One caveat: as we become accustomed to viewing data instead of actually reading it, we can lose our ability to engage in critical thinking.

Also blogged about here and here.
