This is the name used by the glamorous science magazine SEED – founded by Adam Bly, the youngest member of the Canadian National Research Council – to describe their visual tool aimed to “survive the 21st century”.

Nothing more than infographic illustrations (with a lot of text!), but it seems to work very well in the science popularization.
Or, at least, in the popularization of the magazine it self!

Two years ago, Bly launched also Phylotaxis, a visual news aggregator designed by Jonathan Harris, based on the idea of finding the balance between science and culture: a simple but effective graphical synthesis of the possible(?) balance between linear and complex systems.
