Mike Bostock's beautiful examples
Eyeo 2013 - Mike Bostock from Eyeo Festival on Vimeo.
One of the things that amazes me about the fields related to infographics and visualization (scientific visualization, information visualization, data visualization, news graphics, information design, etc.) is that they tend to attract people with a keen willingness to share all they know, and help others. I mentioned that in the interview with John Grimwade in The Functional Art, (read it for free), but the comment can be extended to many other folks. Sure, we may have to endure a self-serving, pretentious cretin every now and then —if you have some experience, make an informed guess,— but most people you will meet in conferences, presentations, workshops, are good-natured, down-to-earth, and friendly. We're lucky.
