I Can Haz Data Visualization?Feb 4, 2010 In News By Thomas Lewis
Everybody loves good data visualization. The New York Times has been especially good at using data visualization to demonstrate the power of information visualization as a communication tool. We thought the topic was intriguing enough to create a lab about it.
As you may know, we have a sister conference called MIX where we will be hanging out at in March. We want one of you to be there with us (actually, we want all of you there). So we want to take our love of data visualization and our love of giving you something free to give you a chance to win a free ticket to MIX10. We also will be including our limited edition notebook (only 200 produced) to the winner.
What do I have to do to get a golden ticket Willy Wonka?
Simple, three steps.
- Follow our Twitter account.
- Create a brutally awesome data visualization of our content on MIX Online (writings, labs, about, our Tweets, etc.). It can created with whatever, displayed however you desire as long as it can be hosted on the web, so no visualizations made of marshmallows and pencils!
- By Wednesday, February 10th, 3pm Pacific time,tweet this: Hey @mixonline,I want a free ticket, check out my data visualization at (insert a link to your visualization here). #MIX10
We will then take the most brutally awesome one, do an Opinion post about it and why we thought it was so brutal (ummm, realize we are not “experts”, but are avid consumers, so we may be a little subjective). Then we will send you your free ticket to MIX10 and one of our amazing notebooks.
