Just Another Stupid Bar Chart


Human creativity is virtually limitless. But:

  • You don’t vary color by data point.
  • You don’t force the eyes to a pendular movement if you can avoid it.
  • You don’t use a legend when you can use axis labels.
  • You can’t have a residual category that large.

Bloggers don’t seem to learn, even with a good teacher.
