I was pondering what to post about in this blog. Then the thought came to me about how we had to have visualizations in our answers for some of the questions on the test. My immediate thought was: "Why?" What do visualizations do that make it necessary to implement them in a written exam and why do people ever need visualizations? We talked about this in class and how they communicate far more efficiently then our words ever could. The link at the end of this blog directs you to a TED talk about visualizations and what they do for human communication. Our visual senses pick up more then all of our other senses combined and if we include this in our writing and communication, then I believe that all of our future writings can be more efficient and interesting.
