Modern, Cheapass Hieroglyphics?

From Twitter stats to baby shats - Infographics have taken over. In the age of multi-media and tech savvy every-bodies, taking dull, lifeless raw data (zucchini, I'll say) and turning it into an interesting visual medley that will involve and even entertain viewers with whatever specifics you're trying to relay (I'll call that ratatouille).

Producing such imagery may be labor intensive and require a certain amount of technical prowess with Illustrator, but what you get in the end is a simple and sexy way to explain daunting particulars to a populations whose attention span in receding faster than your uncle Mort's hairline. Below, IBM has managed to staticize someones bundle of joy and above - the resume of the future!
