Fuel prices, pageviews, sparklines

Not surprisingly there’s a rough correlation, from Feb 08 to Dec 08, between interest in this article () and the price of fuel over the corresponding months ().

That’s all. Just a tweet, really. Too bad you can’t tweet sparklines!

  1. As twittered to John, you can now find a ubiquity command ‘sparkword’ that implements Bill Zeller’s solution here:

    The value range is very limited, so I chose to make the min value always display the 1/8 char, the max value is always the whole block. To twitter a sparkline with ubiquity, highlight the numbers, ‘sparkword this’, then ‘twitter this …rest of your tweet’.

    Thanks for that, and also for the intro to ubiquity, which I hadn’t seen until before.
