“Among the goals of good information design, maximizing local usability is not the highest—although you want to do the best you can to reduce administrative clutter and inconvenience. More important is the quality, relevance, and integrity of the content; making high-resolution comparisons; showing process, mechanism, dynamics, causality, explanation; and capturing in our displays some of the multivariate complexity of the world we seek to understand. If achieving these higher-level goals takes us to inconvenient display technologies, so be it.”
Edward Tufte, February 4, 2002 speaking reasonable in a discussion about the value of Flash in regards to Usability and Information Design
