Small World

At the DeYoung Museum, I saw a nice show of the photography of David Seymour, the pioneering photojournalist who worked under the name of CHIM.

The exhibit was made possible by the photographer's nephew, Ben Shneiderman. At the museum, I was startled. Ben Shneiderman, the hypertext pioneer, inventor of treemaps and UI guru?

Yep, the Ben Shneiderman.
