The Median Isn't the Message by Stephen Jay Gould

Edward Tufte: New ET Writings, Artworks & News

Here is a fine piece of writing by Stephen Jay Gould on his coming to terms with the discovery he had cancer.

Link from Edward Tufte, a graphic designer who has helped people imagine aesthetically pleasing information. That is information that is attractive, that interests one, humanely and beautifully rendered. I recommend browsing. Tufte always makes me feel smarter after reading.

The way a poster we design at Good Nature connects art and science together is all about the struggle to balance information in a way that doesn't overwhelm a page.

Your thoughts?
