Guru on Paper: Edward Tufte

As requested by Jon Hicks,
I present to you none other than one of my favourite gurus: Edward Tufte. From
his book Envi­sion­ing Infor­ma­tion
to his lat­est essay on
, the man has changed my views on (infor­ma­tion) design and has
been an inspi­ra­tion ever since I made my first chart.

Through the magic of bits and bytes I have tele­ported a younger Edward Tufte
to the twenty-first cen­tury! As you can see he is giv­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion on good
design. Some­how that par­tic­u­lar slide looks famil­iar… Can it be that Tufte
has been noti­fied of the lat­est
rev­o­lu­tion in blo­gos­phere
? Has he come to real­ize that the new gen­er­a­tion
is ready to take on the liv­ing legends?

So what guru shall I draw next? Men­tion your favourite in the comments.
