Link roundup, December 2011

Trust someone from a mathematical science institute to think outside the box by creating a box. It’s a 3-D poster! Also known as, a, er, cube. Winner of the most interesting thing on conference posters I’ve seen this month. Read the whole story on the Cosmology at AIMS blog.
A post from 2007 on justifying text that is still relevant. Making justified text look good is a tricky business.

So many ways to abuse pie charts...

I wonder how many people remember the content of the cube poster vs. just the presentation. Also have to wonder how many people/hour could actually read it.

Obviously the solution is to have multiple cube posters instead of just one, to better serve one's audience!
