Taplin's blog

There are few days when I check out BoingBoing and *don't* find something that sends my mind off in interesting directions.

Last week, BoingBoing pointed its linky finger at John Taplin's blog.

Since then, I've been devouring Taplin's back-catalogue. I've deliberately stayed away from finding out much about who he is. I'm enjoying taking his words for what they are, unencumbered by his resumé.

In addition to lucid, polymath analysis, he's got some of the most compelling data graphics I've seen for a while. Two recent favorites, on the sad state of the US current account deficit and the sad state of the music industry, respectively.
