Scott Rosenberg's Links & Comment

Scott Rosenberg's Links & Comment: "Two amazing examples of the power of good graphic presentation: Here's the most wonderful dynamic web-page chart showing the churning rise-and-fall of popularity in baby names, boy and girl, across 100 years. I don't know where the data's from -- wait, I do, it's from the Social Security Administration! -- but it's presented in a glorious interface (reminds me of Edward Tufte's beloved graphic of Napoleon's Russian campaign). Go, type your name in, see how the mighty monikers rise and fall on the waves of human fickleness! [link courtesy Steven Johnson]"
