The Data and Information Guru
Looking for some tips on how to present data for that upcoming PowerPoint presentation? Edward Tufte will be in Manhattan from September 27 - 29 to offer a one-day course on "Presenting Data and Information." The Boston Globe has called one book by Tufte a "visual Strunk and White," while PC Magazine has called the same book "a touchstone of style." Tufte has also written a famous essay on how PowerPoint affects thought. For examples of his work, check out Tufte's Web site.
Disclaimer: We're not getting paid by Tufte to do this -- we like him because he's both a Tiger and a Bulldog. That not enough? The New York Times has called him "the Leonardo da Vinci of data." The guy has a master's from Stanford, a Ph.D from Yale and seven honorary doctorates. Plus, he's a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. In other words, he's a heck of a lot smarter than you'll ever be.
