I’m incredibly excited about this new project that I am kicking off – prettynumbers.com. For years, I’ve been interested in quantitative analysis and data visualization, but with the amount of available data constantly expanding via the internet and open data services, the need for dialogue and perspective in these areas has never been greater. It is my hope to use this blog to investigate the exciting (at least to uber-geeks) field of data visualization and to help showcase some of the cool examples that there are out there (because there aren’t enough of THOSE out there). Of course, the other reason for this blog is to motivate myself to generate my OWN visualizations and give them a place to live. I’ve got one that I’m working on, but it’s challenging work.
Anyway – check out the new blog. I’m having a blast doing it!
