Design Geek Stuff Here: Proceed with Caution

I just love Smashing Magazine. This is such a cool post for design wonks and anyone who likes to see some exciting new design approaches to the mundane process of data display. You should look as soon as possible in case Elton has the internet shut down tomorrow or something. I know, I know... this isn't how data is 'sposed' to be shown... this is not stuck in the past. This is... gasp... new and different. Good God... EJ may be right. Subversive modernists!
Data Visualization: Modern Approaches: "Data presentation can be both beautiful, elegant and descriptive. There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data - tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. However, to convey a message to your readers effectively, sometimes you need more than just a simple pie chart of your results."
Uhh... sorry, just took a pill and feel a lot better.
