Reading Response 8

Reading Response Week 8

  1. I think there is merit to the idea of static interactivity and the use of a high resolution poster, but I wonder if that would work on a computer screen. Is there a way to grab people's attention by having them do a similar zoom in that draws them in to dig through the data?

  2. Is the intrinsic condition of narcissism a valid opportunity to exploit or should we be combatting that by making the data self-reflective about our narcissistic tendencies?

  3. How does interactivity affect how much information you take away from the visualization? In my personal experience it is similar to writing flash cards to study for a text, by engaging with the information with muscle memory it creates a memorable experience that may make the user more easily able to recall the data.
