A periodic table of visualization methods


A couple of us were joking on a call earlier today about who does the best job creating visually appealing presentation slides, and quickly came to the conclusion that it's not so much who can design the best slides as who has the best access to other presentations from which we can steal, er, leverage best practices.  (Hmmm....  joking about creating visually appealing presentation slides. Yes, I think it's safe to say that we all need to get out more)

So with that in mind, here's a timely link from BoingBoing:  A periodic table of visualization methods.  Hover over each "element" to see an example for that method.  I know it may be a bit late for Lotusphere presentations, but I figure it can still come in handy down the line.
