The infographic where the art meets information design. We took the most popular articles from the 2nd largest index of backlinks (after Google) and illustrated them.
Every day you read the news ...what does your mind look like after years of reading?

-Welcome back Mark Vital, you look great today.
It was pleasant for me to hear my name. I recently changed my name. It took me a year to choose my new name. I believe one’s name reflects their mission in life.
Before I changed my name, choosing the right one was a struggle. I wanted something that is short, practical, businessy, not too obvious, not too smart, not too stupid… I was told I need to make a decision fast.
So I woke up every morning with different names and lived with it one day. Since I was traveling it was pretty easy to give a different name to people in restraints, taxis, and hotels.
-Good morning, John Bigs. Did you sleep well?
No that’s too cliche….
-Mr. Will Metals, how are you doing?
(or worse yet Vlad Metal, but it sounds like Russian or Romanian Vlad Drakula, famous vampire)
-Thanks I’m good…( But, again, I’m not sure about this name. Let’s come up with something better.)
-Brother, I’m gonna name you Will Deciden, so you will make your decisions fast.
-Thanks, anything else?
-Let’s take the name Cosmos? It’s an old Greek name.
-That sounds interesting, but will people understand it?
-Then you need to tell me exactly what you want. And how do you want people to perceive you?
I want to live a long life.
Well that’s easy, living is vitality. Why don’t you make your last name Vital.
OK, that sounds good. I also want to be useful to people, create things that matter, things that will last for a while.
It sounds like you want to leave a mark in this world. So, why don’t we call you Mark? It will also remind you about your Jewish roots.
Great, I like it.
So I woke up the next day with my new name, and I liked it. I used it the next day, and the that entire week. And I felt that it was it. It’s been several months now and I like it even more.

Me and my brothers 30 years ago and now.
I look at this picture and realize we look older, but I feel the kid is still alive inside of me. It's never too late to make my #dreams come true.
