I've got this thing about dashboards. A decade ago, I was an Esther Dyson fan, and I believed that data dashboards would fix the world's problems. I even made my own dashboard dials for Excel... (see: http://www.instructables.com/id/Speedometer-Graph-in-Excel/ for an example of what I'm talking about.)

And then I realised; no-one reads them. Or if they do, they become target fixated -- I'm not sure which is worse.

This article is lovely.
