Link: The death of interactive infographics?

“Gregor Aisch, who works at the New York Times, gave a talk about the publication’s graphics and their impact. And the scary resumé of the talk was: Barely anyone interacts with the New York Times’ graphics. The New York Times makes arguably some of the best interactives in the field, which made Gregor’s talk even more depressing. His number of only 10–15% of people clicking on buttons — even essential ones — tells you that interactives are a waste of time and money.”

Há cerca de um ano, a ProPublica desenvolveu uma ferramenta para procurar e comparar as localidades e os médicos que mais receitam drogas nos Estados Unidos. Recentemente um dos editores lamentou o fato de muitos usarem a ferramenta para saber quem são os médicos que mais prescrevem opiáceos. O CJR fez um resumo do imbróglio.
