The first assignment (two examples: simple and complex) is due Thursday 2/14 at 5pm.
Find two examples of information design or data visualization: one simple, and one complex. Write a brief (100-200 words) note for each about why you've chosen it, and what you think makes it simple or complex: How many data points are included? Is the representation communicating effectively or hiding something? How could it be improved?
For each example, collect 1) your description, 2) a link to the original, and 3) an image (JPG or PNG).
Assignments should be emailed to fry at mit dot edu before 5pm Thursday 5/14. (Late assignments are not accepted.) Each description should just be plain text in the body of the email, and the two PNG or JPG images added as attachments.
