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.

After a few people kindly mentioned and shared details about my new book being available for pre-ordering I thought it would be a good time to post a brief update on its progress.

This is the second in a series of three blogposts about the Seeing Data project. In this second post, I reflect on one of the research methods that we used, called 'Talking Mats', which we think offers some really exciting possibilities for measuring the effectiveness of data visualisations.

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 October 2015.

This is the third in a series of three blogposts about the Seeing Data project. In this final part I will be reflecting on our findings and considering some implications for visualisation designers.

It was a great pleasure to be invited by Stephanie and Jon to join them as a guest for the first Rad Presenters episode recording of 2016, otherwise known as Episode #29.

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.

In my recent 'Ask Andy Anything' webinar Andy Cotgreave and I were faced with a particularly challenging pair of questions, one about sharing 'success stories' and the other inviting us to offer an elevator pitch for the value of data visualisation. I think this project by the excellent Alvin Chang of Vox is a perfect exhibit of the role of data visualisation.
