Context over Content!

I love, love, love when concepts and data can be displayed in an easy-to-grasp way for those of us who are visually inclined!

Here is a great example from Valdis Krebs\ of well done graphics -- but also a 2x4 to the head in terms of explaining a key tenet of social media:  context is more important than content!  It's a hard concept to convey sometimes, especially to old school database type people who still espouse the "Content is King" approach to IT. You can tell people, a statement may be true, but if I hear it from Anderson Cooper, I'm gonna give it a lot more weight than if Maury Povich is sayin' it.  But you see this graphic and you GET it.
