My Interview With Edward Tufte

I recently attended Edward Tufte‘s Cincinnati lecture on Presenting Data & Information and interviewed him for VizWorld.  The post and audio interview are available here.

Who is Edward Tufte? In the immortal analogy of @polarisdotca, “Tufte : graphics :: Feynman : physics :: Gretzky : hockey.”  Recommended by computer science and art professors alike, the dog-eared works of Tufte have graced my bookshelves ever since I was a wee computational sciences graduate student.

That reminds me to frame and hang up the print of this amazing infographic created by Charles Joseph Minard in 1812.  Click on the image to get a better look.  I love it when history and the principles of good information design come together to tell a compelling story.
