A number of readers have attempted to reformat the same data to improve readability and the results have been posted today. Some of them are quite successful, too. However, the animation of the original effort was the best example of attention-grabbing.
This post and the subsequent replies are a great example, not only of the myriad ways that a single data collection can be displayed, but, more importantly, the value of sharing insights with an on-line community. The learning this has enabled amongst readers is fantastic, and I recommend you have a scan through the different attempts at useful graphs.
