Harvard Discovery Series with Alberto Cairo
For a long time data visualization has been taught as a craft that is based on strict rules (“don't use pie charts!”, “bar graphs should always have a 0 baseline!”) This talk explains that this strategy is both limiting and misguided. Decision-making in visualization should instead rely on the notion of “reasons”, facts that count toward holding a belief or taking an action—or toward avoiding doing so.
