I like the idea of the dashboard as a way of retrieving information with a quick glance. The Indianopolis Museum of Art has a dashboard which summarises some key figures about the museum. I think it would be more effective for the consumer if it had some comparisons.

The kw useage for example could be compared to other museums, or like the Australian electricity bills, to what they used this time last year. Comparing seems to be a very natural human desire (I am constantly doing it here in my new digs), so it may also help with communication.

Thanks to Information Aesthetics for the link.
