International Chart Day

Congressman Mark Takano, from California, has announced the first International Chart Day in collaboration with Tumblr and the Society for News Design.

Takano has also introduced a resolution in the House officially declaring April 26 as International Chart Day. According to his press release, he will “deliver a speech on the House floor about the importance and history of charts. Other members of Congress on both sides of the aisle will be encouraged to participate.”

Several graphics folks —myself included— will participate in an event to celebrate the announcement. Attendance is free, so see you there!
