The Power of Visual Representations

I'm always impressed by the power of visual representations. They seem to be much more natural and intuitive than formal representations. The Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5 license is probably one of the best examples out there how one can harness this kind of power the most efficiently:

Of couse everything that is powerful in our universe can be well-used and abused also. Marketing exemplifies the best how one can selfishly abuse visual power by notoriously emphasizing the benefits of his/her products or services while neglecting their disadvantages or putting them in the footnote written with the smallest font size that nobody can really read without a microscope.

From now on I will consciously strive to make my blog more visual by including related images in my posts.
