The purpose of visualization is insight, not pictures

An Interview with Ben Shneiderman, by Jessica Hullman in ACM Interactions

ACM Interactions magazine is a mirror on the human-computer interaction and interaction design communities and beyond. It is a multiplicity of conversations, collaborations, relationships, and new discoveries focusing on how and why we interact with the designed world of technologies. Interactions has a special voice that lies between practice and research with an emphasis on making engaging human-computer interaction research accessible to practitioners and on making practitioners’ voices heard by researchers.
