Understanding America.

Wow. Here it is. Pages upon pages of high quality infographics for all of you voyeuristic Canadians! Poking our nose over the border to watch all those Yankees is somewhat of a national sport… Watching their newsfeeds, reading their magazines and following their gossip. I’m still not quite sure if it’s an attempt to figure them out or to fodder our distain. ;)

Although it’s a bit out of date, Richard Saul Wurman’s UNDERSTANDING paints an incredible picture of American statistics. Everything from population to war to the federal debt.

I strongly suggest you download & explore the flawless PDFs.

Most of us want to practice the things we’re already good at, and avoid the things we suck at. We stay average or intermediate amateurs forever.

Heh. Amateur. Read more about [Your] New Brain.
