    1. The concept of parameterization is crucial to visualization because the ways in which we assign value to the data will have a direct impact on the ways it can be displayed.

      crucial concept in understanding and being successful with visualization.

    2. Many information visualizations are the “reification of misinformation.”

      Is that a good or bad thing? or both.

    3. or semantic value, is crucial to the production of information visualization. But any sense that “data” has an inherent “visual form” is an illusion.

      Eye grabbing word: Semantic Value and the statement "But any sense that data has an inherent visual for is an illusion" is a very interesting statement.

    4. ranging—anything that can be quantified, given a numerical value, can be turned into a graph, chart, diagram, or other visualization through computational means.

      this is ignoring context of the situation and is making the claim that regardless if it is given numerical value it can be made into a bar graph. For our purposes this is true

      So as our history so did our understanding/interoperation of a timeline and what it is necessary to it.

    2. But Priestley’s commentary points to a problem too. History had never actually taken the form of a timeline or of any other line for that matter. And simplicity, the great advantage of the form, threatened also to be its greatest flaw.

      So this thought is that time may not be linear as we are taught or suspect. A very interesting thought to say the least

    3. the object of any of our senses, and no image can properly be made of it, yet because it has a relation to quantity, and we can say a greater or less space of time, it admits of a natural and easy representation in our minds

      believe due to his efforts and in part of our desire for a deeper understanding we have given these traits to time. Father time, a grandfather clock also gives a representation of time. The line specifically "can say a greater or less space of time, it admits of a natural and easy representation in our minds". Is a interesting statement
