Manuel Lima, currently senior UX design lead at Microsoft Bing but maybe best known from the (now sparsely updated) blog Visual Complexity and his recent book with the same title, like to discuss the power of network visualisation in a wide and conceptually rich manner.

You now have to chance to experience his 11-minute talk online, but instead of seeing Manuel talk in front of his slides, the following presentation solely consists of a large set of sketched illustrations which represent and visually clarify the most important concepts that he discussed.
