Talk: Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don't Work

"In 2008, Dan Roam released his first book, The Back Of The Napkin, to immediate and lasting acclaim, promptly winning numerous awards. His premise was that visual communication is much more effective than mere text, and that people weren't taking nearly enough advantage of it. Four years later, Dan has finished ""Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don't Work"", which continues where The Back Of The Napkin left off by introducing new tools and frameworks to help anyone -- not just the graphically inclined -- translate their ideas into useful, helpful, and understandable visuals. Dan also recently launched http://www.napkinacademy.com/, which brings his tools into the realm of online courseware.
