An update on the Trumpery lecture series

After I announced my Visual Trumpery lecture tour, I received requests from more than 30 cities. I've been organizing my schedule this week; below you can see a screenshot of the Excel spreadsheet I'm using. I'll do my best to announce places and dates in early June.

As mentioned in the original post, the talks will be free and open to anyone. I'll provide more information about how to sign up as soon as I can.

A few other updates:

• The current working title is Visual Trumpery: How to fight against fake data, fake facts, and fake visualizations —from the left and from the right. The subtitle may change a bit. I'm still debating it.

• There'll be a dedicated website for the tour, www.trumperytour.com.

• I'll try not to mention any politician by name in the talk, which will be, as the subtitle indicates, bipartisan. However, the left-right split in the examples won't be 50-50. Nowadays a disproportionate amount of data bullshit comes from the far right.

• I may write a book about it, too.

More news coming soon.
