Rachel Emma Silverman, the reporter who interviewed me and several of my visual-thinking colleagues for her article in the Wall Street Journal, totally gets the Doodle. Her description of what companies are doing to elevate visual thinking accurately reflects the crazy uptick in the market trying to understand its applications. It will be a long [...]

It doesn’t seem right to have Jared Spool, Matt Jones, Mike Moran AND Stephen Anderson all under one roof. I think we’re supposed to spread the Smart around. But they and I were all invited to Webdagene 2011, Norway’s best user experience conference. Each of these guys are “kahunas” in their field (pardon me, I just [...]
CEOs for Cities is a rock-and-roll nonprofit that has consistently proven it’s on the cutting edge of conversations around designing and innovating cities of the future. This relatively small but dynamite organization connects urban leaders to front-line research, human-centered and tech-oriented projects, and perhaps most importantly, to each other.

Click a thumbnail for a larger view. Click here to view them on Flickr. Being part of any TED event, whether as a speaker, facilitator or visualizer, has been like joining a family. A big, raucous, good-samaritan, wildly creative family. I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of being involved in various TED events, my first [...]
Our last blog post on Robert McKee’s STORY Seminar was so beloved by McKee’s folks that they requested to use the visual notes as their marketing piece. Mia, Robert’s lovely wife, sent us this image to show how they juxtaposed my content with theirs. I know many of you are equally enamored with story as [...]
As I grow in my visual thinking work, it’s become abundantly clear that the story is 100 times more powerful than the visuals that support it (and am I going to get in trouble for saying that!) I’ve always known that visualizing crappy content is like putting lipstick on a pig, but the overwhelming importance [...]
And here we go again with SXSW Interactive – a festival to make other festivals shrink in fear. This mammoth affair brings some 75,000 people to Austin and for the last four years, I’ve been responsible for curating the live visualization team during the Interactive portion (and for showing up prepared for a panel that [...]
