How about an evening of talks and discussion of visualisation? Sounds good?
Not something I am organising here, I’m afraid, but London-based Kay Thaney and Matt Wood are hosting just such an evening on March 28th (19h00 start) as part of their programme of sameAs events. They say:
We’ll be showcasing some of their work and highlight their unique interpretations and approaches to this month’s topic. You won’t want to miss this.
There’s a great line-up for the evening:
- Noah Illinsky – Co-author of Beautiful Visualisation
- Jade Davies - Visual designer, known for her unique pin-based approach
- Dan Catt – The Guardian, formerly at Flickr
- Jessica Hagy – Behind the blog “Indexed”, showing us humour through drawings on index cards
- Mark Graham – Oxford Internet Institute, Geomapping expert
- Stefanie Posavec – Designer, illustrator and OK Go collaborator
- Thomas Down – Gurdon Institute, creator of the genome browser Dalliance
- Andrew Walkingshaw – Distiller of statistics, co-founder of Timetric
- Brock Craft – Research Fellow at the London Knowledge Lab
The event will take place on the second floor of The Driver pub in Kings Cross (http://is.gd/M6HkiU), it’s free, and no registration is necessary. I’m not sure I’ll be able to make it, unfortunately, but if you can, it certainly looks like it might be worth the trip! Oh, and they also say:
