Edward Tufte on Powerpoint
post # 353 — April 13, 2007 — a Client Relations post
Shawn Callahan, a regular participant on this blog, sent me a fabulous link to a discussion of Powerpoint’s abysmal contribution to obfuscation, especially as it affected NASA’s decsiion-making ability. The ensuimg discussion is serious and heavy, but worth reading. Like me, Tufte is on a campaign to stamp out Powerpoint.
For those of you who don’t know his work, Tufte is the world’s expert on the visual display of quantitative information. His books are works of art. Look for them!
