the good life in a digital age

you lot aren’t very visual

Whilst we’re on the subject of assumptions, the title of this posting was another observation by another colleague about information architects. It was meant as a statement of fact and not something that would upset anyone, let alone the IAs.

Now this ‘fact’ successfully ignores my impractical desire for my notebook to be A3 sized to allow for much bigger diagrams but that’s besides the point.

We can be, I admit, narrow in our communication methods. Most people never want to be shown a spreadsheet. But I think in this instance my colleague is confusing ‘being visual’ with ‘using colour’.

Then again ‘you lot are a bit grey’ isn’t really an improvement.
