Suggest new code for use in coding Google charts:
function NodrawChart ( )
Thus no 3D pies, no inept interactivity, no color codes, and no 
3 significant digits from LittleData.

No offense, Tufte, but I can't take any of your design considerations seriously when your online bulletin board looks like this:
http://www.edwardtufte.com/bboard/q-and-a?topic_id=1

The design of your website is so bad it should be taken out back and shot. You have no less than 504 links on that page. Followed by the super informative: "***  =  3-star threads."

Buy hey, to clarify, add detail, right?

What is supposed to be the first pie chart ever appears in William Playfair's Statistical Breviary (1801). It is reproduced and discussed on pages 44-45 of The Visual Display of Quantitative Information.

Google Charts is barely worthy of PowerPoint, and a step backwards from the 1980s Harvard Graphics.

Some good can be done though: https://plus.google.com/+MartinoMosna/posts/Sr3dSZCScH8 (the post is in italian, but the chart meaning should be straightforward)

I was being facetious. When I saw your monologue in Boston several years back you embarrassed a gentleman who dared to ask you a question. Hopefully you've become a bit more modest in your old age.
