This is really clever stuff. Simon Elvery set himself the challenge of building an algorithm which can produce XKCD-style narrative charts, like this one for the Star Wars trilogy:

Another week, another awesome visualization. This one is Steven Witten’s Tools for Thought, which starts with explaining why there is only one true parabola, one true exponential curve, and one true logarithmic curve, and everything else is just a transformation of those. But wait ’til he shows you the Discrete Fourier Transform in real-time. It’s amazing.
