FlowingData published some days ago a short post entitled Business intelligence vs. Infotainment about a comment by Stephen Few (Perceptual Edge) talking about the work of David McCandless (Information is Beautiful), saying, among other things, that McCandless "don’t point the way to a productive future for analytics".
But the most interesting part of the post came in the comments. Stephen Few, along with anothers, included Nathan Yau, started changing impressions on the comments, ideas and one of the big discussions in infographics and data visualization: the hard balance between an informative and a decorative infographic.
Very interesting to read. A discussion to share, participate and learn from it.
