[Deb Roy's TEDTalk: The birth of a word] MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language -- so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn.

Understand how technology is adopted. This chart is worth discussion in many college classrooms as it relates 100 years of technology adoption rates.
Adoption of New Technology since 1900 February 18, 2008 Historical graph showing the adoption of new technologies in the United States (designed by Nicholas Felton that I found via the New York Times). For example look at percentage of households that had telephones over the last 100 years and compared this to the time it took for cellphones to be adopted. 12/23/2010 I found a more detailed version of this graphic at Karl Hartig's portfolio site.

The chart in our show is not the first to map the history of modern art. The Museums first director, Alfred Barr, made a famous one for his landmark exhibition Cubism and Abstract Art, in 1936. Our typography and font were chosen in homage to his. Barrs handwritten versions of the chart are preserved in MoMAs Archives. Here is one example of Barrs handwritten chart in MoMAs Archives

Charles Minard's 1869 chart showing the losses in men, their movements, and the temperature of Napoleon's 1812 Russian campaign. Lithograph, 62 x 30 cm. Found via Lev Manovich's list of innovative visualizations of temporal processes. lab.softwarestudi...

“The best statistical graphic ever drawn“, is how statistician Edward Tufte described this chart in his authoritative work ‘The Visual Display of Quantitative Information’. The chart, or statistical graphic, by Charles Joseph Minard (1861) is also a map. And a strange one at that. It depicts the advance into (1812) and retreat from (1813) Russia by Napoleon’s Grande Armée, which was decimated by a combination of the Russian winter, the Russian army and its scorched-earth tactics. To my knowledge, this is the origin of the term ’scorched earth’ – the retreating Russians burnt anything that might feed or shelter the French, thereby severely weakening Napoleon’s army.
Napoleon's March to Moscow: The War of 1812 Infographic : Probably the best statistical graphic ever drawn, this map by Charles Joseph Minard portrays the losses suffered by Napoleon's army in the Russian campaign of 1812. Beginning at the Polish-Russian border, the thick band shows the size of the army at each position. The path of Napoleon's retreat from Moscow in the bitterly cold winter is depicted by the dark lower band, which is tied to temperature and time scales.
Napoleon's March by Charles Joseph Minard - early data visualization graphic
timeline 1869 Charles Joseph Minard’s Thematic Map of the Successive Losses of French Soldiers in the Russian Campaign, 1812–1813. Among the finest of Minard’s graphical works, this chart plots the catastrophic loss of men in relation to place, time, and temperature during Napoleon’s march to Moscow.
