Edward Tufte on the iPhone

I’ve been an enormous fan of the work of Edward Tufte for decades. His notions about density of content are extremely relevant in this age of information overload, and he has just released a video in which he evaluates what works and what doesn’t on the device of the moment, the Apple iPhone. Before I give you the link, I should emphasize that the QuickTime file is enormous and may take many minutes to download, but its insights and presentation make it worth the wait. It’s here.
