At the end of each month I pull together a collection of links to some of the most relevant, interesting or thought-provoking web content I’ve come across during the previous month. Here’s the latest collection from July 2016
I recently had the pleasure of being invited to record a new episode of the excellent PolicyViz podcast with Jon Schwabish, during which we discussed my thinking, intentions behind and contents of my new book.

In October, the leading academic data visualisation conference, IEEE VIS 2016, is heading to Baltimore, running from 23rd to the 28th. One of the many rich strands that make up this conference will be the 'Visualization in Practice (VIP)' events.
To mark the completion of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, I have been working, with my trusted lieutenant Andrew Witherley, on designing a new version of 'The Pursuit of Faster' project. This visualisation explores the evolution of medal winning performances across all Olympic Games since 1896 as athletes strive for that ultimate pursuit of being faster than the rest.
Earlier today I had the pleasure of being invited back by Tableau to deliver a second webinar of this year. The talk was titled 'Separating Myth from Truth in Data Visualisation' during which I dispelled and acknowledged some of the 'always and nevers, mostlys and rarelys' that exist in data visualisation design.
Yesterday, I was alerted to how out of date my collection of visualisation (and related) books was over on my references page so I have just been through my memory banks to add as many titles as I can recall have been released over the past couple of years since I last tended to this list of suggested readings.
