It's all about looks: data visualisation and storytelling

Please join us for April's gathering where the topic is all about data visualisations and visual storytelling.

We'll be talking about the best and the worst data visualisations. Why they really work, or really don't. We'll also be considering other novel ways news is increasingly using images, video, sounds and graphics to tell stories.

We'd like people to come prepared to share examples of their favourites an unfavourites with the group. Do send us links via twitter or facebook and get ready for vigorous discussion, guided by a panel of experts in the field.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
