The Good Room – Frank Chimero
Most importantly, reading a book is active, unlike most of the passive consumption we do in front of screens. I think a lot of the anxiety we can feel from technology comes from that passive relationship alongside its speed. Look at cable news or your social media feeds. All day long, we’re having absurd novelty, enviable affluence, and sincere tragedy and distress sandwiched together and railgunned into our face. A book offers some necessary composure and consistency to help find our bearings in a world oriented toward violent delivery.

Sometimes We Must Raise Our Voices - sometimes_we_must_raise_our_voices.pdf
In the book The Visual Display of Quantitative Information (1983), Tufte’s first and perhaps finest, he introduced the concept of the data-ink ratio. It’s a concept that I teach in my books and courses—one with which I heartily agree — but for one aspect, which I think Tufte took a bit too far.

Data looks better naked — Darkhorse Analytics | Edmonton, AB
To illustrate how less ink is more effective, attractive and impactive we put together this animated gif. In it we start with a chart, similar to what we've seen in many presentations, and vastly improve it with progressive deletions and no additions.

Clear Off the Table — Darkhorse Analytics | Edmonton, AB
In the gif below we start with a table formatted similar to one of Excel's many styling options which, much like the chart styles, do nothing to improve the table. Progressive deletions and some reorganization deliver a clearer and more compelling picture.

Phatic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In linguistics, a phatic expression (pronounced /ˈfætɨk/) is one whose only function is to perform a social task, as opposed to conveying information.[1] The term was coined by anthropologist Bronisław Malinowski in the early 1900s.

Is Google Making Us Stupid? - The Atlantic (July/August 2008)
Over the past few years I’ve had an uncomfortable sense that someone, or something, has been tinkering with my brain, remapping the neural circuitry, reprogramming the memory. My mind isn’t going—so far as I can tell—but it’s changing. I’m not thinking the way I used to think. I can feel it most strongly when I’m reading. Immersing myself in a book or a lengthy article used to be easy. My mind would get caught up in the narrative or the turns of the argument, and I’d spend hours strolling through long stretches of prose. That’s rarely the case anymore. Now my concentration often starts to drift after two or three pages. I get fidgety, lose the thread, begin looking for something else to do. I feel as if I’m always dragging my wayward brain back to the text. The deep reading that used to come naturally has become a struggle.

My ongoing research focuses on designing usable tools that facilitate information access, management, visualization, and exploration for casual users-those without programming and system administration skills.
