Sharing a nice piece on Edward Tufte

Came across this article today on Edward Tufte and wanted to share it. It's been a while since I wrote about Tufte but his work never strays far from my thoughts. My presentation at the Hall and my personal research project (which with any luck I can begin to make public in the fall) are both greatly influenced by him. Enjoy.

Tufte is good stuff. Read a few of his books a while back. Actually the team at work almost brought him in for a consulting gig. I think after pricing they just sent a few folks to a Tufte training class for a few days.

Trick for me is that there is no good way to deliver Tuftesque presentations and deliverables is by hand. Most software invariable violates most of his principles.

oops - except by hand
