What Makes a Data Visualization Memorable?
Interesting piece in CGW: The title question alone gives me pause. I want to make data useful and objective. I also want a data visualization to be the knowledge infrastructure for dealing with data and its meaning. It's exactly the reason I often do not like Infographics, which mean to attract attention to data, and make it more memorable. Often obscuring the actual meaning. Give me a objective starting point for working with data, and support for further understanding it. Not attention and spin control.
