Tall Infographics Suck

There's an ever-increasing trend to display information in the form of tall, indecipherable infographics: long colorful panels that look like they contain a wealth of information, but don't. That's not a good thing.

Like Randall Munroe says in today's XKCD, "'Big Data' doesn't just mean increasing the font size." But then, if you can find any decent data on most of these kinds of infographics, do let me know. [XKCD]
