I like data and I like to ask empirical questions (see my old blog), but often translating data so it can be understood is difficult.  And I lack the necessary graphic and computer skills to make my data come to life.  In fact, I wish my own classes and paper presentations had far more visual flair than I know how to do with PowerPoint.  Watch this video, which is an amazing display of data visualization.  Imagine if law professors had the resources and/or expertise to make their presentations come alive this way.  (And I note that any faculty job candidate who did this would be hired immediately based on what this would mean for their classroom experience.)
