Ooh, both of the towns that I have called home are represented by actors that starred in the Bourne Identity!

Weird geographical patterns aside though, I've always loved the visualizations from The Pudding. There always seems to be a good balance of functional interaction to actual data presentation. In this one I particularly like how the magnitude of the dot is related to the famous-ness of the person instead of the population of the city (see Ernest Hemmingway from Ketchum, ID), even though they're often correlated. It makes sense, but some data-visualizers these days.... wags finger
