"It was my last day in Balakot, Pakistan, covering the aftermath of the massive earthquake that killed tens of thousands and left large areas in ruins. I went to the main mosque to view the Friday prayer. The place was turned into a pile of rubble, but still people attended in large numbers. As the prayer started, the mosque was covered with worshippers. This represented hope for me. No matter the size of a tragedy, no matter how hopeless it seems, people will cope, come together and search for strength in their faith."

What happens when you click on a weblink? Here's one answer: a request goes from your computer to a server identified by the URL of the desired link. The server then locates the webpage in its files and sends it back to your browser, which then displays it on your screen. Simple. Well, the process was indeed like that once – a very long time ago. In the beginning, webpages were simple pages of text marked up with some tags that would enable a browser to display them correctly.

Business intelligence expert Stephen Few goes on another rant about information graphics — mainly about the work of David McCandless, designer of The Visual Miscellaneum . Few's post is in response to another from Teradata marketing director Mario Bonardo, praising innovation and new ideas, etc for business intelligence. Bonardo wrote: "Being asked about the differences between traditional information graphics and his own ones, McCandless said he is aiming to remove as much irrelevant information as possible to get to the core of things, discover new correlations and challenge traditional views.” My dismay does not stem from McCandless’ words, but from his actual practices, which don’t deliver what he claims and certainly don’t point the way to a productive future for analytics. Normally, I take the let's-agree-to-disagree route, as these types of arguments always end up going in circles, but I actually agree with Few.
