Edward Tufte interview

Edward Tufte is important, not because he’s come up with a magic scientific rule to present data, but because he’s saying we should present methodically and scientifically. I was reading a terrible PowerPoint “stack” today about some complex engineering problem and all the time I was just thinking about Tufte’s brilliant exposition of the use of PowerPoint at NASA during the Columbia accident.

There is an interesting feature article in the Washington Monthly.
