In order to sprinkle some star dust into the contents of my book I've been doing a few interviews with various professionals from data visualisation and related fields. These people span the spectrum of industries, backgrounds, roles and perspectives.

To mark each mid-year and end of year milestone I try to take a reflective glance over the previous 6 months period in the data visualisation field and compile a collection of some of the most significant developments. These are the main projects, events, new sites, trends, personalities and general observations that have struck me as being important to help further the development of this field.

I was very pleased to be invited by Matt Francis and Emily Kund to join them to chat about data visualisation on the latest episode of their 'Tableau Wanna Be Podcast'. Amongst other things we discussed some of the nevers and shouldn'ts of data visualisation.
