Edward Tufte is having a yard sale | MetaFilter: “Attending one of Tufte’s full-day sessions in San Francisco was one of the most monumental disappointments of my professional life. It was 8 hours of dry-but-acceptable lecturing, chock full of ‘turn to page 82 of ‘Visual Display of Complicated Information’ and read the 3rd paragraph down’ … silence … then he’d read it to us and maybe talk a little bit more about it. Maybe. The guy’s a genius in many regards and I agree with his sentiments against presenting information using slides in general, but he does a horrible job convincing people to present without them. It was just terrible.”
