For one of the best examples of how computer charts and graphics especially when animated can reveal data. Check out the following link. I know the message is grim but for a moment think about the technical aspects of how any chart can show multiple aspects from the same data. How it is more powerful than just tables of numbers.

They say a picture is worth a thousand works. A moving must be worth a million.

The programmer that did this just earned his years salary. Maybe several years.

Now we can go back to the grim message.
So many years of programming I have forgotten more languages than I know.
