A few years ago I discovered a book by Edward Tufte about making complex statistical information understandable which is definitely in my top ten books of all time. As the amount of data in the world increases at an exponential rate, it becomes less and less useful unless you can make easy sense of it.
This ranks up there. I came across this video by Manuel Lima who works as a Senior User Experience Designer at Nokia’s NextGen Software & Services in London. This is both beautiful and thought provoking.
8 minutes long but if you are not hooked within 20 seconds, do something else. Let me know what you think.
Once you watched it, want to bet that Manuel Lima will be presenting at TED within two years? Thanks Manuel, you totally made my day.
