Over the past two months I have held contests (1 #Graphiti, 2 #BestWorstViz) for successful participants to win a free copy of my book when it is released in June.

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.
