Oliver! He is the author of the most delicious Pie Chart telling us how awesome plain cheese pica is. The stomach starts growl - literally.

Here is his story:

"I have been a fan and creator of data visualizations and infographics for several years now, so I was excited to find out about infogr.am's Pie Chart Contest. Coincidentally, just before the contest was announced, a friend had been teasing me about my preference for plain cheese pizza, and told me that adults do not like it. This prompted me to launch an informal poll on this topic on my Facebook page, which provided the data that I visualized on infogr.am. And, more importantly, I was able to prove to my friend that adults DO in fact like plain cheese pizza!”

Indeed: Cheese Pizza Opinions

As a winner Oliver gets his favourite pie and the special t-shirt designed to honor Pi(e) Day. 

Don’t know about the t-shirt, but Oliver is going to share his pie with colleagues in the Laboratory for Ubiquitous Computing and Interaction at UC Irvine. Well, Bon Apetit!

 

The Pi Day is coming! All the math and greek letter geeks unite in 3/14/14. But what is Pi without a Pie?

Infogr.am is celebrating The Mighty Pie Day. Or the Pie Day to put it shorter. Therefore we are running a fun little contest. The author of the best, most creative and most delicious Pie Chart gets up to $50 worth of his favourite pie, and a very special t-shirt designed to honor Pie Day.

Send us the link to your infogram* – either a full infographic or a single chart – that displays the special power of the Pie Chart to pieday@infogr.am by March 14, 15:09 (PST).

Help us to spread the word and get PRO for 1 month!

Every month there’s a day when infogr.am team is having some fun. This time it happened to be this way. 

Some time ago we learned that the good folks at Piktochart have left behind two generic domains - .net and .org, so we bought them (having nothing particular in mind). But as we’re geeks and generally fun-loving folks we thought to something about this. 

'Let's make a new piktochart!' we thought. So we took a bit of time to create a pixel-style charting app that looks right from the 1980s. Creation of charts is command line based and result, as for any contemporary web application is Pinterest & Facebook ready. Besides, the output is vector graphics, so you can even print those gorgeous scalable pixel charts. For a finishing touch we used a pure javascript generated chiptune. It's now live at piktochart.org

Piktochart folks were fast to pick this up, and it seems had some fun as well. We’re thankful to them for reporting some javascript bugs on our Piktochart.org project, we’ll make sure to fix them shortly. 

On behalf of infogr.am team we’re always happy to bring some innovation to the web. Happy pixelcharting ;)
