When I want to learn about something, this is exactly how I want it to be communicated to me. No bullshit, no scroll hijacking, no glitz. Just direct, clean and concisely communicated data and no bullshit visuals.
Granted, there is a time and place for anything. I just love this for what it's doing.
Does anyone have any other examples of similar NYT articles? I remember seeing a couple but after a few days it gets pretty hard to find them again (unless I'm missing some awesome way to filter by these types of articles only).
