Pie (Charts) in the Sky

Shawn Wallwork has a knack for starting some interesting (to me, at least) threads on the Tableau forums – like this one about the forums themselves. He posted an idea yesterday for Tableau changing the layout container paradigm for dashboards to more of a canvas GUI like other tools, and invited folks to submit their paradigm-shifting ideas. I got just a wee bit pie in the sky in my response, check out the Change to a ‘Canvas’ GUI thread for a dose of a potential future where views can be flipped from screen to screen and rearranged with the same ease of use that we have when we swipe to unlock our phones.

    Your title confused me for a bit, what do pie charts have to do with this post and why does he want pie charts? Then I got it, and I lol’ed 🙂

    And it is not just you, Shawn has a lot of great thought provoking threads on the forum.

    Thanks for the kind comments guys. I very much enjoy the conversations we have both on and off-line, even whey we disagree, maybe especially when we disagree.
