I've been thinking quite a bit about what I call the 'visualization problem' lately - meaning ineffective visualization for presentations, reporting (or business intelligence), search engines, blogs, etc...is it just me, or does the preponderance of crap out there just seem to be increasing exponentially? I honestly have difficulty walking into stores like Best Buy, because the bombardment of media just wears me out. Also, having just returned from a week in Las Vegas, a quiet day on the beach today was quite therapeutic.
I am pretty much of a 'zen' person generally - less being more and all that, so when I got the book 'Presentation Zen' at last week's meeting, I took note. I just finished reading it, all in one setting, and recommend it heartily. The timing is good, I am just starting to think about how I will present the content at the local MSDN launch events in April and May (both of which have sold out - thanks to you!).
If you do presentations, you should read this too.
