Tracing a single graph across the web

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

In 2006, thousands viewed this chart on ThisIsIndexed.  Then in 2008, thousands viewed the below chart on GraphJam, inspired by the one from ThisIsIndexed and created by a Felix.  Over this past weekend, Miss Cellanea posted the graph without linking to the original GraphJam page (but thanking one of the millions of Joe’s in the world). Then came über-blogger Andrew Sullivan, who posted the chart today citing Cellanea. No doubt some millions have now seen it.

My conclusion: Always link to your source. And eventually, good content gets recognized.
