I was thinking something similar would be a great way to express
options in a complex system and how they interact... but that could be
more like a Venn diagram or flowchart than an 'infographic' as depicted
in that article.
Also, are Ikea manuals infographics?
Heck... what IS an infographic? Is it like art--you know it if you see
it, but it's hard to define comprehensively without over-generalizing?
