Using networks to map our complex world
I've shared videos from the RSA Animate series in this past, because they are an excellent way to engage with new ideas. This relatively recent RSA Animate video is based on a late 2011 presentation by Manuel Lima, Senior UX Design Lead at Microsoft Bing and founder of VisualComplexity.com.

If you enjoyed this video, you might like the 2007 video, which "explores the changes in the way we find, store, create, critique, and share information":
