The temp job I'm doing for today and tomorrow is at the Hyatt Rickeys in Palo Alto, where they're having a 2 day seminar with Edward Tufte on "Presenting Data and Information." I was mostly doing registration today, but I caught little bits of the talk and it seems like it's really interesting. Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to get one of the jobs in the actual room, where I can hear more of it. I want his books now, too. We had to pack up all three of them into bags to give to seminar participants, and each bag of books probably cost more than I'll make at this job. (The books are Visual Explanations, Envisioning Information, and The Visual Display of Quantitative Information.) Oh well. Off to the library again!
