Revisiting Good Blogs: Eager Eyes (Robert Kosara, UNC-C)

Robert Kosara is a professor at UNC-Charlotte, responsible for opening my eyes to the world of information visualization and visual communication when I was a student in his graduate course a few years ago.  He is a deep thinker and his blog/website, Eager Eyes, is well worth taking the time to explore!

Here are some links to his posts:

You Only See Colors You Can Name "While color is a purely visual phenomenon, the way we see color is not only a matter of our visual systems.  It is well known that we are faster in telling colors apart that have different names, but do the names determine the colors or the colors the names? Recent work shows that language has a stronger influence than previously thought."
