Reverse Engineering ‘Frequency’

We’ve all seen the stats about how many people are born every minute, or how many flights depart every hour, but the genius of Randall Munroe’s implementation is in demonstrating how frequently events occur, especially in relation to each other.

Jeremy Singer-Vine’s reverse-engineering of the Frequency comic back to numbers is less meaningful, but what he does so well is in explaining some of the technical issues with the GIF-based presentation. It’s a great companion piece.
