Funny thing is, I love the first one because it's all about pure information—spare, monochrome, one idea at a time—and I love the second one because it's just the opposite: a cascading waterfall of mostly useless infographics. Maybe it's just the sensation of being taught. Maybe it's just porn for info-geeks like me. Either way I can't take my eyes off them.
