    Soda, Pop, or Coke?

    INFO VISUALIZATION: The debate continues.

    That's funny. I said POP before I clicked on the link... and wouldn't you know it... the visual map was right on the money. I'm from Michigan and I'm a Pop drinker. 8-)

    I'm from NE Ohio and pop is indeed king.

    It's interesting that soda has an isolated following in Wisconsin. My grandfather is from there and, coincidentally, his surname is Soda.

    I can see they don't have any data for my county, but everyone around here calls it soda. Reminds me of the S.E. Hinton novel "The Outsiders" that I read in my youth.

    Man that's great. I was born and raised in "Pop" country (Western PA), but presently live in "Soda" land (eastern PA). That graphic is spot on. Funnier yet, the same is true with "Commode" and "Toilet." LOL.

    Anyway, great blog. I stumbled into your place by accident, and I really cant remember how ... oh well!

    Like most of the people in the southeast, I use Soft Drink. I've never heard the 3 listed except in movies.

    I found your link at Dmoz: http://dmoz.org/Reference/Libraries/Library_and_Information_Science/Weblogs/

    As in my case, I think you also selected the term 'Information Visualization,' to synthesize whatever is communicative.

    Do great minds always think alike?
    Visit my blog and let me know what you think my blog looks like.
    Best wishes

    And here I thought POP was a reference to the housing bubble.... Los Angeles is SODA LAND.

    Great blog, by the way.
