Information vs. ComprehensionAfter sitting through two days’ worth of sessions here at RailsConf 08 I’ve learned a very important lesson: the value of information increases with comprehensibility. In other words, if your audience doesn’t understand you then the information you provide is far less valuable.

This is obvious on so many levels, so I’m wondering why this isn’t clearer.

Some do this really well.

Others, not so well.

If you can communicate and have valuable information, this is an opportunity.
