Telegraph's new election map

I quite like what the Telegraph have done with their hexagon-based election map… a few holes in the data, slightly too long for comfort on a normal screen config, and a few not-quite-accurately-placed places (especially in NI), but a nice app nonetheless. I still have a soft spot for the Tetris-style presentation of the Electoral Calculus site, though.

Oh… and while we’re on the subject of the Telegraph, full credit to them for embracing OpenID. On one hand, it’s a smart branding move: its readers see themselves as ‘Telegraph people’, so why not authenticate themselves against the Telegraph site? On the other, it’s smart project management: sometimes the best way to get from A to B is to go via C.
