One of my favorite blogs is called indexed:
Indexed author, Jessica Hagy, displays thought provoking ideas on index cards. One of the tenets of Autodesk Labs is visual thinking. So many of the Autodesk Labs developers also like the site. With what has been happening in the stock market lately, the index site inspired me to create:
I simply created an image file using Microsoft Paint. When I first created it, I used the word "People." Then I realized that was too general, so I wanted to change it. Alas I had a PNG image and could not edit the text. So I added the red footnote. If only I had created this in Project Draw:
Project Draw lets me create text that I could easily edit. I could easily change BULLS to BULLISH, BEARS to BEARISH, and move the description of the intersection. It's true that the Microsoft saying of "eat your own dog food" can help one discover software benefits. For non-watchers of American sports: The Chicago NBA team is the Bulls. The Chicago NFL team is the Bears. Bullish stock market traders believe the stock market will go up. Bearish stock market traders believe the stock market will go down.
Diagramming without installing additional software is alive in the lab.
