In this soak, data visualizer Eric Rodenbeck, from Stamen Design, tells us about his efforts to create compelling visual stories from the formerly indecipherable heaps of data that surround us. Eric tells us about hiring bicyclists to track the Google Buses, and he shares his awe at the tsunami of computation that is washing over us.
“You can talk all you want about what the data might show or what the danger in it might be, but until you actually make it visible there’s no real way to have a concrete conversation about it.” – Eric Rodenbeck
