Tufte!

Cool! I've always wanted to take one of Edward Tufte's courses, and at long last I have signed up for one. Next month I'll get to listen to him talk about information design. And I'll get a copy of his new book. (And coincidentally copies of his older books as well. My copy of The Visual Display of Quantitative Information has been AWOL for about a decade.)

This is me being nerdy about the other aspect of my profession. There is the implementation of the software, but there is also the design of its user interface.
