Whoah, I love this: Over on Edward Tufte’s site, there’s a long wavelength conversation about the pros and cons of Gantt charts that’s been going on, slowly, for four years. The contributions are all really smart.

Search for “notation of orchestral music” on the page for a fun surprise.

Goddamn, Robin, your links are going to be the death of me.

It is for the faithful that I write 🙂

I hate Gantt charts, and the notations of orchestral music comment is fantastic.

I agree that the orchestral music comment is great. It also reminded me of one of the plot points of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: in the book there exists a piece of Software called “Anthem,” into which forward thinking executives could feed all sorts of data in order produce an appropriate corporate anthem.

Do you think such software would sell in today’s business world? Might hard working executives download summaries of the week’s meetings onto their iPods (or share them via their Zunes) to consider the tasks ahead in a more abstract way?

A great powerpoint presentation:
