First, let me state that I am an engineer and I can think/visualize in
3D. The comment above struck me funny as I am constantly amazed at the
difficulty I have at visualizing financial concepts. Many of these
non-engineering types are probably constantly amazed by this. My point
is that ones capability to visualize certain things depends on your
training, background, and interests. I agree with you fully that any
tool that helps 'outsiders' understand is a good one. Isn't that why we
all have jobs in RP - if everyone grasped what was on the screen, you
wouldn't need a prototype....
