Story and Data Visualization

An interesting white paper by Robert Kosara and Jock Mackinlay about the potential relationship between Story and data visualization.

...Stories package information into a structure that is easily remembered, which is important in many collaborative scenarios when an analyst is not the same person as the one who makes decisions, or simply needs to share information with peers. Data visualization lends itself well to being a communication medium for storytelling, in particular when the story also contains a lot of data.
