Infographics expert Manuel Lima talks here about the thousand-year history of mapping data — from languages to dynasties — using trees of information. He tells the fascinating history of visualizations, and the urge to map what we know. He talks about networks and the way we use them to explain decentralization, interconnectedness, interdependence. He sees this new way of thinking as critical for us in solving many of the problems we are facing nowadays. The diagrams and pictures are worth a look, just for themselves.
We are learning how to ask questions and use research processes to meet and understand the challenges and opportunities ahead of us.
