Reaction: Distributed Cognition as a Theoretical Framework for Information Visualization

Authors state that Distributed Cognition Framework is the theoretical basis for InfoViz. Compared to other two papers that I read this paper was not that convincing. Also the language used and terms and examples used to explain their points are difficult to digest. The authors have not presented a complete study of the Cognitive framework. My views for this paper are that this paper would be a good reading for those students who want to dive in this research area and not for beginners in visualization.
