Visualize this

Why we still have to sit through mindless three bullet points presentations will become even more of a mystery to you, once you've read the piece about visualization techniques 'Data Visualization: Modern Approaches" from Smashing Magazine.

The article examines mindmaps and ways how to visualize news, data, connections, websites, etc. In addition, tools to create your own innovative graphs and visualizations are being offered.

The old adage still applies and perhaps even more so in today’s media driven society, "A picture says more than a 1000 words." These new visualizations allow us to better understand connections and touchpoints we never even thought about before. The innovative combination of form and content offers remarkable insights and learnings.

Who knows, I might have become a math wizard if we had access to these tools in High School. Well, maybe not.
