LHC, The Higgs Boson, and the missing Visualization Expert
The internet lit up yesterday with news of the LHC and CERN’s big discovery of the possible Higgs Boson discovery. Some beautiful imagery and science was discussed, and then the head of the project Fabiola Gianotti got up to discuss it. And what was shown was simply nauseating to look at, as shown above. Multiple Colors, incomprehensible graphs, and Comic Sans.
Does anyone up there have basic computer graphics knowledge? Quite possibly the most important scientific discovery of the decade, and they fill the presentation with purple slides and comic sans?
Thanks to a Facebook friend for posting this atrocity.
