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.

Every time you use Powerpoint Edward Tufte kills a kitten

To avoid any unnecessary kitten killing, use Tech Talk PSE instead.
