Interactive Inspiration [48]

Tackling complex issues with alternative ways of communication

August 9, 2013

With a lot of people still trying to digest Jeff Bezos’ acquisition of the Washington Post, it’s only natural that we open today’s Interactive Inspiration with a couple of timelines of the newspaper that broke the Watergate scandal and, more recently, helped uncovering the NSA/PRISM programme, alongside The Guardian.

Other topics covered with interactive visualizations include the 1st anniversary of Curiosity on Mars, with The New York Times releasing the Mars Curiosity rover tracker, and several works focusing on sports, as the pre-season of all major sports is already on the way.

Hope you enjoy the full list!
