There is No Such Thing as Information Overload

Edward Tufte 'Presenting Data and Information Lecture'

Looking over my notes from an Edward Tufte course . . .

There is no such thing as information overload, just bad design.

  • Example: Google News presents hundreds of links on a single page and no one complains about information overload.
  • Example: The financial section of the newspaper presents thousands of numbers and no one complains about information overload.
