Here are two recent profiles of me:
Oracle's Profit: "Beyond Big Data" (link)
ASA News (link)
In the second one, they asked me to give advice to people who are interested in getting into data visualization. Here is my answer:
Keep sketching, and keep trashing.
Settle your story and then find the tools, never the other way around.
Hate the default.
Imagine your audience.
If you don’t have an audience, find one.
Inspect your data.
Have a point of view.
Keep a portfolio.
Next Tuesday, I will be speaking at BIG Frontier in Chicago on Big Data and marketing. Free admission. You can register here.
The second book giveaway is still open. Try your luck here.
