Rolex 24: Amazing finish!

January 26th, 2009

Can’t believe the finish at the Rolex 24! Amazing. After 24 hours of racing, less than 30 seconds separated the top 4 LMP cars. WOW. What a great race. Glad to see Brumos on the podium… x2! I wish the TV would show more of the GT-class, though. (Congrats to TRG for pulling off the victory there!)

Now, to get ready for 12 Hours of Sebring. Can’t wait…

Go Brumos!!!

Periodic Table of Visualization Methods

January 17th, 2009

Ralph Lengler and Martin Eppler show a variety of many different visualization methods, arranged as a periodic table. Six categories differentiate the various entries by visualization type: Data, Information, Concept, Strategy, Metaphor, and Compound: http://www.visual-literacy.org/periodic_table/periodic_table.html (version 1.5; no date).

Make sure you mouse over the “elements” to see samples and learn more! Great idea!
