I produce two popular blogs on data visualization and analytics. Through these blogs, I explore and discuss how quantitative information is conveyed to the public in visual as well as textual formats.
What People are Saying
Recycling chartjunk as junk art
As the web's first dataviz critic, I take an incisive look at two or three data graphics that get published in the mass media every week. The blog contains an archive of over a thousand charts and graphs, and is a favorite of dataviz insiders. Learn how to edit and improve your charts.
BIG DATA, PLAINLY SPOKEN
A companion blog to JUNK CHARTS. I discuss mass-media stories that are interesting from a data, statistics, or probability perspective. Recent posts range from steroids testing to Facebook using your name and image for marketing, and from predicting terrorists to fantasy football.
