What's your ink to data ratio?

A friend of mine and I were just talking about the art of revising one's work; she mentioned Tufte's work on data presentation (and his book on PowerPointless). The big question: what's your ink to data ratio?

In reading the previous week's posts, it's clear I've been wasting a lot of ink. As one of my favorite English teachers says, half as long, twice as nice.

Just remind them that Dickens was paid by the word (as are porn writers), and why should you set your standards any higher. :)
