"Spurious Correlations ... is the most fun you'll ever have with graphs."--Bustle Military intelligence analyst and Harvard Law student Tyler Vigen illustrates the golden rule that "correlation does not equal causation" through hilarious graphs inspired by his viral website. Is there a correlation between Nic Cage films and swimming pool accidents? What about beef consumption and people getting struck by lightning? Absolutely not. But that hasn't stopped millions of people from going to and asking, "Wait, what?" Vigen has designed software that scours enormous data sets to find unlikely statistical correlations. He began pulling the funniest ones for his website and has since gained millions of views, hundreds of thousands of likes, and tons of media coverage. Subversive and clever, Spurious Correlations is geek humor at its finest, nailing our obsession with data and conspiracy theory.

An pessimistische Ausblicke haben wir uns gewöhnt. Untergangsszenarien, Krisenerzählungen und apokalyptische Visionen bestimmen den Markt der Zukunftsprognosen. Sie alle leben davon, dass nicht stattfindet, was sie ankündigen. Aber was geschieht eigentlich, wenn das angekündigte Unglück ausbleibt? In den vergangenen Jahren warnten Experten immer wieder vor verheerenden Grippeepidemien. Nicht vor einem leichten Schnupfen oder der saisonal auftretenden Influenza, die alljährlich für den Tod von bis zu 30.000 Menschen allein in Deutschland verantwortlich gemacht wird, sondern vor einer viel gravierenderen Pandemie, die weltweit Millionen von Menschen dahinraffen könnte. Aus solchen Prognosen und Warnungen wird stets ein dringender Handlungsbedarf abgeleitet. Ohne umfassende Vorsichtsmaßnahmen könnte eine solche Krankheit die gesamte Wirtschaft lahmlegen und eine Kettenreaktion auslösen, die über Nacht die Welt verändern würde. Was bedeutet es aber, wenn der Erreger einer Krankheit vorwiegend im Modus der Ankündigung zirkuliert? Warten auf die Pandemie erzählt, was geschah, als nichts geschah. Das Buch von Carlo Caduff zeigt, wie im Wechselspiel von Wissenschaft, Gesundheitsverbänden und Öffentlichkeit die Akteure und die Institutionen durch die Zirkulation dramatischer Untergangsszenarien eine Drohkulisse aufbauten, die äußerst produktiv war. Obwohl das prognostizierte Unheil gar nicht eintrat, erzeugten die Krisenszenarien und Untergangserzählungen ein tiefes Gefühl der Verunsicherung. Dass die tödliche Krankheit ausblieb, die verheerende Epidemie sich doch nicht ausbreiten konnte, führte nämlich gerade nicht dazu, dass man die Bemühungen um ihre Bekämpfung eingestellt hätte. Vielmehr wurden die Vorbereitungen auf ihren Ausbruch zu einer staatlichen Daueraufgabe. Die Schreckensszenarien einer globalen Seuche bleiben im öffentlichen Bewusstsein und verändern so die Welt, in der wir leben.

“What would happen if Harry met Sally in the age of Tinder and Snapchat? . . . A field guide to Millennial dating in New York City” (New York Daily News). When New York–based graphic designers and long-time friends Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh found themselves single at the same time, they decided to try an experiment. The old adage says that it takes 40 days to change a habit—could the same be said for love? So they agreed to date each other for 40 days, record their experiences in questionnaires, photographs, videos, texts, and artworks, and post the material on a website they would create for this purpose. What began as a small experiment between two friends became an Internet sensation, drawing 5 million unique (and obsessed) visitors from around the globe to their site and their story. 40 Days of Dating: An Experiment is a beautifully designed, expanded look at the experiment and the results, including a great deal of material that never made it onto the site, such as who they were as friends and individuals before the 40 days and who they have become since.
