Visually Does Infographics

ReadWriteWeb on a new startup called Visual.ly  Which makes it easy to create data representations  and infographics.  Also share designs socially in a community.   As I have mentioned here previously I am suspicious of infographics.  The clever and cool graphics can entice you to look at the graphics, but often hide any accuracy and spin the results being shown.   Making it easy will make us see more misrepresentation.  At the right, a collection of attractive and interesting data, dismally done as a collection of pies.   Still, this is worth taking a look at and deciding if it is for you.  On the retail side this could be used to quickly construct displays in the aisle that could attract shopper attention.
