Kevin - IMHO -
While interesting, I didn't find much information for practical application.
I found most of his presentation devoid of much true insight other than he
doesn't like Microsoft Office applications, especially PowerPoint. In
Tufte's world we would all be graphics artists with abundant time and
resources to create unique, artful and inspiring presentations.
He makes good points on the importance of clarity and depth in information
presentation. I own his three books and a very humorous paper on PowerPoint
and occasionally leaf through them. They are good coffee table books.

Subject: OT: Edward Tufte
I am considering taking the one-day course offered by Edward Tufte. Has
anyone taken the course on the visual display of data or another of his
courses? Is it a good investment?
