In this movie, I want to talk to you not so much about Processing in and of itself, or even about data visualization per se, but I want to talk to you about some of the principles of design that can help you make more compelling sketches and more informative data visualizations. The first thing you need to know is that informativeness is the major goal, and that is best achieved when you try to keep things as clear as possible. The idea is that complexity is the enemy of comprehension, and the complexity is not a matter of the size of the data set--for instance the number of observations--but has more to do with the number of design elements that you are trying to incorporate into a single sketch or visualization.
