The first official conference of "visual thinkers" from around the world begins tomorrow right here in SF. Held this Sunday through Tuesday at the The Westin San Francisco Market Street, VizThink08 is the brainchild of VizThink CEO Tom Crawford and Xplane's Dave Gray.
The lineup of presenters is literally the 'who's-who' of visually-oriented communicators, from Nigel Holmes to Scott McCloud, from Karl Gude to Nancy Duarte. With 350 attendees coming from around the world and sponsors from Microsoft to Wacom, it promises be an eye-opening conference.
I'm happy to say that my own name also appears on that otherwise stellar list of presenters. Yes, at 11:00 on Monday, Jan. 28, I'll be leading my "Back of the Napkin" workshop, helping participants learn to solve problems with pictures.
