In the late 1990s I attended one of Edward Tufte's day-long seminars. Tufte screened several short films for us, including "Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase", "Powers of Ten", and another short presenting a series of visual proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. There are a variety of such films out there on the tubes, but can anyone help identify which one Tufte is likely to have chosen? [more inside]

How do I make pretty lines like Style.org's The Strouhal Number in Cruising Flight. The lines themselves, like the oscillating flight path and the angled lines in "Amplitude perpendicular to the angle of attack" seem just perfect. Is there a good workflow or template to recreate this in Illustrator or Photoshop? [more inside]
Has someone made a list of all the types of charts/graphs/visualization types say from the books by Bretin / Tufte / Tukey etc? Wikipedia has something similar here: Diagrams or Charts. The idea is a simple list of graph names/techniques that one can quickly scan through while planning an infoviz. Anyone?
What about London should I map? [more inside]
