Will Traditional Charts Survive?
The Extreme Presentation Method Here's something we came up with to help you consider which chart to use. It was inspired by the table in Gene Zelazny's classic work Saying It With Charts (p. 27 in the 4th. ed) [The chart chooser is step 7 in the 10-step Extreme Presentation method for designing presentations that drive action. More details on the chart chooser in my blog , on the Extreme Presentation site , and in Advanced Presentations by Design -- 1/20/09]
Video: Molecules Moving in Living Cells A new microscopic imaging technique has provided what may be the most realistic real-time video yet of molecules moving in living cells. Called Stimulated Raman Scattering, it uses laser beams to hit molecules, causing them to vibrate. Tracking the vibrations produces a sequence of point-by-point molecular maps. Unlike other types of molecule-specific, cell-level imaging, SRS doesn’t require fluorescent tags that illuminate targets but could also affect their behavior. Proof-of-principle examples of SRS, described Thursday in Science , involved the penetration of acne-busting retinoic acid into skin cells and the movement of fats through brain cells.
At CanUX 2008 in Banff , Yvonne Shek described UX swimlane deliverables that help clients understand users, business needs and technology all at once. UX swimlanes outline a bird’s eye view of a story, scenario, or component for sponsors, designers, businesses, and engineers. Executive & sponsors: high level comic that illustrates the scenario UX & creative team: flow through steps of a process Business: fulfillment process and business logic Technical team & architects: data systems, back-end technology When to use swim lanes: really early in the project during discovery & strategy stage to get everyone on the same page Helps to get buy-in on the scope of a key scenario or story from stakeholders Focuses on what you are building and why are you building it. Outlines requirements for stakeholders and working team How do we start making swim lanes: start with workshops to set scope (what’s in and what’s out) Flows first: who is user what are their goals, etc. UX Swimlanes
How to Insert YouTube Videos in PowerPoint Presentations This tutorial describes how you can embed videos from YouTube, Facebook and other Flash videos into your PowerPoint presentation slides. You can insert YouTube videos in your PowerPoint presentations in two ways. You can either “embed” the Flash video in the slide itself or you can link to the YouTube video from the slide that will auto-play when the presenter clicks on the video link. Which approach should you follow?

Misconception #1: A Better Chart Starts With… the Chart Wrong. It starts by asking yourself if you really need one . Perhaps a statistical measure of some sort is good enough, perhaps you should use a table. If your job is to find patterns in a data set and build shared knowledge about it, what really matters is how efficiently the message is sent, and how efficiently it is received by the audience (two different things). Misconception #2: You Should Master the (Technological) Tools of the Trade 14 Misconceptions About Charts and Graphs
Things wordy, geeky, and webby Since taking a class that discussed Edward Tufte ‘s work, I’ve been fascinated by turning information into visual data. His site contains many examples that you could easily spend hours on the site. I have. Plus, I spent several days browsing sites with articles, resources, and examples of infovis (information visualization) in action. It’s not just about presenting data in a presentation or making things colorful.
Visualization Lab: Illustrations Illustrations are artworks designed to present or enrich content. They play an especially important role in science, where they can be used to show objects or phenomena that are beyond our perception. Unlike other types of artwork or diagrams, illustrations try to present realistic renderings of the subjects they portray. The Visualization Lab has created a series of illustrations that show familiar objects across ten orders of magnitude in a single illustration: the human bloodstream, a butterfly wing, and a computer chip.
