Information visualization

The abundance and complexity of information requires that we rethink how we relate to information (creating, validating, disseminating, evaluating). David Gelernter says: “If you have three pet dogs, give them names. If you have 10,000 head of cattle, don’t bother”. To cope, we rely on technology to do our cognitive grunt work – providing visual representations of information…allowing us to move to meaning/sense-making more rapidly.
