Via FasCo:

Colin Pinegar untangled his virtual and real relationships with an infographic, and ended up confronting some real-world messiness.

Pinegar emphasized the importance of the physical aspects of friendship—actually being around one another. The decision to make what amounts to a physical infographic is a reflection of that importance. “Like friendship it took a lot of time, planning, and effort, but I think it was far more impactful than looking at a poster would have been.”
