Journalism in the Age of Data

Geoff McGhee has put together a remarkable documentary on the state of Data Visualization and more specifically its expanding role in the world of journalism. I was lucky enough to be given a few minutes of screen time to discuss my Annual Reports, but the film is a great opportunity to hear from most of the biggest names in the field including:

  • Martin Wattenberg and Fernanda Viégas, creators of Many Eyes and the Google Visualization group.
  • Ben Fry, the co-creator of Processing.
  • Steve Duenes, Amanda Cox and many others from The New York Times graphics department.
  • Eric Rodenbeck, founder and creative director of Stamen Design.
  • Jeff Heer, co-creator of the Protovis javascript visualization library.
