dream.20061218: graphing

by Rob Friesel

We’re at each others’ throats, people from work and myself.  These should be simple enough visualizations of easy-to-graph data but they still keep missing these subtle but critical aspects of each.  “My mother could graph better than this,” but that sounds like an insult to too many parties to be fair in any respect.  They’ve got the part about using bar graphs down just fine but they’re still not adjusting their y-axes to maximize the differences.  It escalates into a shouting match, almost.  (They think I really did show these data to my mom, for one thing.)
