Prof. Tufte / by Nick Kamboj

Professor Emeritus and Statistician Edward Rolf Tufte, has with great simplicity and eloquence, described the importance of the interrelationships between data and information as well as their placement.  Mr. Tufte’s intense public criticism of Microsoft PowerPoint and the misplacement of information has resonated with many across the business and scientific community; Mr. Tufte’s analysis of the events which lead to the Space Shuttle Columbia Disaster resulted in Mr. Tufte’s opinion that the misplacement of data and information in Microsoft Power Point resulted in oversights by NASA program management.
