About this talk
Who are the visionaries of modern data visualization? Edward Tufte, Stephen Few, Alberto Cairo? But did your list include Willard Brinton? If not, it should. 100 years ago he wrote the definitive book on chart design, Graphic Methods for Presenting Facts.
In this session we will:
-Learn that almost everything you thought to be a modern innovation is, in fact, old
-See that the big data problems you have today were equally bad 100 years ago
-Discover how Brinton inspired today’s leading names in data visualization
