  19. 19. decoration help people ‘decorate’ a visualization to better communicate its relevance and context
  20. 20. decoration
  21. 21. tweakability instead of making the visualization a snapshot, make it an interface that lets a user playfully explore the data.
  22. 22. tweakability
  23. 23. annotation let people annotate the visualization in a consistent and coherent manner
  24. 24. annotation
  25. 25. snapshot let people store and retrieve configurations of an interactive visualization
  26. 26. snapshot
