Excellent Information Presentation

Wealthiest Americans Ever...
Interactive Feature: The Money Race

Here are two great examples about how to present information using the interactive capabilities of the Internet. The display of the Wealthiest Americans Ever... is great for two reasons: First, it is always important to understand modern "facts" in the context of history. This puts Bill Gates, Warren Buffet's and Sam Walton's fortunes into historical perspective. Second, it is an excellent example about how to show off data in a compact form using the benefits of the interactive Internet.

The second example Interactive Feature: The Money Race (published the next day by the New York Times: way to go NYT) improves on the first example by adding animation so that you can see how candidates raise money over time.
