Jessica Helfand takes the piss out of Edward Tufte in The Dispassionate Statistician.
It's about time someone did. I've attended two of his seminars and read his books, and he does leave much to be desired in many aspects of his theories. At least, to me he does.
It's not just you; his books are OK, but his seminar is a complete waste of money.
Yeah, but does anyone else find her critique of David Bryne to be, ummm -- WRONG? I mean come on! David Byrne does not deserve to be lumped in with the likes of Tufte and dismissed.
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.
