The $$$ of Education (was Re: How to Get Into Interaction Design?)

Yo Dan,

As someone who did the grad school thing (from a MOST excellent
program, at Rensselaer Polytechnic) in the same price range as
Carnegie Mellon, I can tell you I would not trade it for the world,
even with the combination of student loans, assistantships, part-time
employment. THAT SAID, you should be aware that the student loan
payments will not be just a few hundred bucks a month. This IS like a
mortgage, so forget ever getting a mortgage.

Data visualization: Playing everything vs. Making user interact

In the context of data visualization what kind of interface is better, one that plays the data upfront or the one that reveals the details progressively as the user interacts with the interface?

Say, in the absence of anything better, we want to show a trend of how certain data changes over time. There are multiple data points, each varying over time. Is it better that when the user reaches the interface we play all the data at once or we just show one trend and then provide a way for the user to see how each data point varies over time.

...and don't forget to laugh

While in pursuit of the simple, the
clear, the intuitive, the new, I'd like to give whimsy, surprise, and um, the warm embrace of stupidity, their due.

No matter the domain, – virtual or tangible, high tech or high touch,
interfaces or environments, – innovative thinking is accompanied by the opportunity to twist toward one of four emotional
outcomes: the aha! (scientific knowing),
the ah! (aesthetic experience), the ha ha! (humorous relief) and the duh? (what
I’ll call “blessed stupidity”).
