Sparklines

I’ve always been some kind of a fan of Edward Tufte since I discovered his beautiful exquisite books. You have to check it out if you are interested in visual representation of information.

Today I was searching for a blog by or on Tufte and I stumbled upon the sparklines idea, it’s already a few years old, but there’s now a new draft of the sparklines chapter from Tufte’s forthcoming bookBeautiful Evidence.

Implementations:

Sparklines are apparently becoming popular. There’s even a Sparkline Wiki and sparklines.org directs to Tufte’s home pages.
