E.T. Links: Workshop, NPR, Sparklines

Those of you who have been following my blog know what a ginormous fan I am of the work of Edward Tufte, aka "E.T." I recommend his brilliant and all-around fun one day workshop on presenting data and information to anyone and everyone with a functioning frontal cortex. Just a few days ago there was a story on National Public Radio about his wide-ranging work, "The Many Faces (And Sculptures) of Edward Tufte," which you can listen to on-line here. The story mentions his work for be sure to check that out. And you can read more about his ingenious "sparklines" here. More anon.
