I’ve fallen in love with LibraryThing, a social website where you can indicate what books you have and you get recommendations based on some subtle correlation algorithm.
While browsing there today, I got that recommendation:
Envisioning information by Edward R. Tufte
693 copies. Average rating 4.32.
Why? Well, I’m not sure right now. How about “Just because”?
(In fact, Envisioning information is a book that I wanted to buy for a long time. I even have it in my Amazon Wishlist so the recommendation algorithm seems to work well enough)
To the lecturer from MGI (sorry, I forgot your name) who sent me a very nice mail about Envisioning information:
I’ve suffered from a major technical glitch and I’ve lost your email. As a result, I don’t know your name nor your email. Please send me your coordinates once more. Thanks.
