Got a cool website today from Buzz Feed, www.perspctv.com . I would describe it as a political data aggregator site, it does a great job of collecting and displaying both quantitative and qualitative data from across the net. The nice part is how the hard data from CNN, Google and Alexa (among other sources) is presented, mainly in nice graphical pie charts and also in a historical manner (under the timelines tag). Additionally, the site has streams from Twitter, Blogs and News sites that update frequently. Overall it’s a clean efficient design and I would like to see if someone can setup a similar format for other head to head matchups (example: American Idol, the Olympics, sports playoffs). Below is their widget, which shows how well the site shows hard number data in a graphical manner.
