Visualization Friday – Back From Hiatus

by alex on August 28, 2009

Hey all, sorry it’s been so long since I put up some eye candy.  Today’s posts come from the usual sources (flowing data and other various information design blogs) but I also wanted to point you to a new source of cool: http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/

So without futher adieu, your Visualization Friday Posts (some pertinent to the display of information security metrics and knowledge, some just downright fun & cool).

Seriously, if you’re going to develop and present dashboards or powerpoints about security metrics to any audience but *especially* decision makers, I’d get into Stephen Few.

Cool stuff! Can I ask you to copy images to our server so that they don’t break when random servers around the net break?

Nice to see the Schengen Wall visualization, its Federated Identity IRL. The world is already federated, its just the security mechanisms that are lagging
