David McCandless recently gave a talk at TED in Oxford, where he discussed the importance of design in navigating the information in our lives.
He is a writer and journalist who also runs the blog Information Is Beautiful, where he frequently posts fascinating data visualisations.
They have included the budget of the BBC, time travel in movies and TV and Wikipedia’s Lamest Edit Wars.
His book is filled with many others and is an absolute must-read.
