Do we need tools to create storyboards to prepare our data stories?

Posted on Tuesday, July 1st 2014

Some people think yes we did - that’s the reason to be of this blog – and some people think that paper is still the best way to prepare stories.

That’s the idea developed by Geetesh Bajaj in his blog post about Analog Storyboards
He promotes the idea that paper is better connected to our brain, than an electronic screen, thanks to textures that stimulate our brain. “i[The computer is really good for editing your ideas, and it's really good for getting your ideas ready for publishing out into the world, but it's not really good for generating ideas]I”, explains Arthur Kleon.
I don’t think we need another battle between pros and cons of paper versus electronic screens.
The example of Nancy Duarte who prepared her first book through a wall sized paper storytelling is interesting. And I really would like to have an office wall made of tactile screen to combine versatility of electronic writing and contact with paper.
And my paper storyboard can’t be shared online with my co-workers… Honestly I see more progress in the electronic storyboard than Geetesh Bajaj seems to see. But that’s an interesting point of view I wanted to share with you. What do you think about it?
