A blog about the new solo talk I’ve created recently that revolves all around data sketches, the dataviz collaboration I’m (still) doing together with Shirley Wu. In this talk I (but also we) discuss the lessons that we’ve already learned from doing 10 months of creating an elaborate data visualization a month. Highlighting favorite months of data, sketches, & code: what made them our favorites, the mistakes made along the way, and how we overcame them. Especially highlighting that many of our data visualizations had humble, ugly duckling beginnings, but that through many (embarrassing) iterations, we were able to produce unique and compelling results.
You can find the slides to our 30-minute duo talk here and the slides to my 40-minute solo the talk here. It might take ±10 seconds to load since everything is loaded at the start. The reason for this is that I didn’t want any lagging to happen during the presentation itself and on a local host it loads in 1-2 seconds. Please look at the slides in Chrome, preferably at a resolution of 1920×1080 (at very different resolutions the text sometimes seems to “twitch” when you go to a different animation/fragment within a slide).
