Why are you interested in this group?

I've been making visualizations and the tools to build them for most of my career. I love working in the field because it offers a tremendous amount of creative possibility while simultaneously being very difficult to get right.

Share a Data Visualization project that inspires you...

The "Useless" map of Australia: http://bigthink.com/ideas/24446 This doesn't inspire me because it's a particularly good visualization. Rather, it's a stark example of tone in information graphics: its frank, colonial-era language and clear bias remind me of the ways in which a supposedly neutral information graphic communicates a point of view.

Do you have any personal data visualization work you'd like to share?
