Edward Tufte is very neat.
Edward Tufte visited Google today to give a talk. He talked about Sparklines and the famous Minard Russian Invasion graphic among other topics. Great stuff. I've been a great admirer of Tufte since I first got my greasy fingers on his book The Visual Display of Quantitative Information. and I only hope that one day I can present information as wonderfully as he. This is one of the reasons I love working at Google: The interfaces are almost all pretty fantastic.
