I attended a one-day course by Edward Tufte a few weeks ago.  I’ve since read 2.75 of his 4 books given out as part of the course.

My brain is now alert to all the chartjunk and PowerPoint fluff running rampant in the world.

So, I’ve taken up the crusade to troll blogs that post wasteful data graphics.  Please see my comment at a popular programming blog.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is probably the best web-only content ever released. Certainly the funniest and 100% Whedon. The first act is out now and you’ll soon be able to watch it for free at drhorrible.com They apparently changed servers and until the DNS change goes through you’ll have to point the URL to 207.57.78.179 in your hosts file (or so I’ve heard). I just paid $4 for all three acts on iTunes, which works fine.
