Stephen Few asked for some thoughts about an infographic. Here's what happened

Perhaps you've seen Steve Few's recent post about a flawed infographic by Time magazine. I agree with Steve's opinion, but some of his readers don't. They have a point, I think: My guess is that this graphic was meant to be shared in social media, so it may need some unobtrusive embellishments. I've tried to find the middle ground in the discussion by proposing a new redesign.

Here's a video of my opinions, followed by my version; there's always room for improvement, so please share your suggestions in the comments section:

(UPDATE: After a few hilarious comments, I should explain that what the guy below is holding is a newspaper or a magazine, not a gun, a boomerang, or a Pterodactyl; I'm just not a great artist!)
