The diagrams you see here are the work of Mark Poyser, who started out in 2000 creating cartoons about the hi-jinks in the stock market. This was a time when the bubble was breaking, and so there were lots of crazy things going on. The cartoons could be seen at the website WallStreetFollies.com, and were also included in CNN-Money’s morning e-mailer, The Eye Opener, for four years (2000 to 2003) until the Eye Opener was re-formatted.

In addition to being seen in on the website, or CNN-Money’s e-mailer, selected cartoons were used or mentioned favorably in a number of publications:
Canada’s Financial Post (accompanying their main editorial of 9 July 2002)
Salon’s Scott Rosenberg’s Links, TheStreet.com, The Houston Chronicle, Grant’s, and was listed as one of USAToday’s Hot Sites for September 2002

One of the popular items developed at WallStreetFollies.com was a diagram of various relationships between major players in the stock market, and various companies – some of which were accused of poor accounting – or worse.

That diagram of the stock market (for the year 2002) was our first step in developing a series of representations of data in a – hopefully – useful and stimulating form. We are currently exploring a number of areas – from geography to religion to politics – with our diagrams. Take a look aound. You might find something you like.

Technical issues

The diagrams (so far) have been created using presentation software. Most are familiar with Microsoft’s Powerpoint, and we use a similar application, Sun’s StarOffice StarImpress. When the diagram is finished, we capture the screen and convert it to a .gif image and that’s what you see on this site.
