Data visualizations
Good advice here re modernizing data visualizations in your presentations. Any advice you'd like to share with your peers, readers?

Do data for good
Beth, 

What a great idea!

I would also add to not limit yourself to, for instance, volenteer to develop a spreedsheet program for a school just because you don't have a child.

Any school would happily welcome any kind of help. :)

No more Powerpoint
It's refreshing to think that my kids will never have to sit through some clip-art filled powerpoint presentation, at work or school.

Re: No more Powerpoint
@Whoopty we wish! My kids are still taught Powerpoint in school. I think once the teachers get something, they want to be able to use it for years, no matter that the rest of the world is moving on.

Teach principles, not programs
Have to agree and lament the teaching of particular, proprietary applications (like the Microsoft Office suite) rather than computing principles in schools. My son has been trained on Word and PowerPoint at school, but they haven't taught him the principles of programming, repeatable applications or the use of data. He has learned more on his own with Lego Mindstorms, for example. Teachers: please be more creative and teach enduring computing concepts, not proprietary programs that will eventually go away.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
