VizThink wrap-up and notes

By Noah | Add a comment | 

VizThink ’09 was awesome. I’ve come back exhausted, energized, and inspired, with a load of new ideas.

Thanks to everyone who presented, who attended my sessions, who asked good questions in all situations, who I talked with and listed to and shared meals with. It was a fantastic time. Special thanks goes out to the crew (and families of!) who put on the conference; I appreciate your hard work and perseverance.

As promised, here are the documents that support my sessions. The best online version of my User-Centered Information Design talk is the version from Infocamp ’08, which includes narration. The only slides missing from that presentation are the design process guidance slides, which I’ve made into a handy PDF.

The snapshot talk on visualizing complexity was supported by this document.

As always, I’d love to hear from you about what worked, what didn’t, lingering or new questions, and anything else on your mind.

  1. Hey Noah,

    Thanks for posting your materials (and for coming down to VizThink in the first place!) – It was great to meet you and I’m glad to hear you had a great time. Erin & I both were talking about how much fun we had w/you, Jessica, Dan & Jack at dinner that night, and throughout the event for that matter. Look us up if you’re in Toronto anytime…

  5. Thank you for this! Helps me thinking through how to structure concept maps and other visual diagrams. I’m collaborating with a teacher of Law trying to visualize complexity for her bachelor students.
