VisWeek is approaching! This is just a short notice to let you know I am organizing a Birds-of-Feather with Robert Kosara titled “Blogging About Visualization” at VisWeek. The goal of the BOF if to meet people who are interested in data visualization blogs (bloggers and readers) and have a chat about current practices and future developments.
Here is the information about where and when:
Blogging about Visualization
Time: Tuesday 4:15-5:55pm
Description: A meeting of visualization bloggers, readers, and anyone interested in discussing visualization on the web. We will discuss experiences, uses, purpose, benefits, and future goals of blogging about visualization.
If you are a regular reader of this or other data visualization blogs and has something to say or just want to meet us and join the conversation please drop by, I am sure it will be fun. Me and Robert plan to give some advice on blogging, in case people want to hear it, and the BOF will be totally informal. It could also be the starting point of new endeavors, collaborations, ideas, etc.
Cocktail & Dinner.
Another good reason to participate is that we will have a cocktail and dinner just after the BOF. We still have to fix the location but we plan to meet at 7pm at the lobby and go there together. If you are interested, even if you cannot come to the BOF, please sign in the google group I created for this purpose: Vis Blogging Dinner. We are already a good bunch of people.
Take care and hope to see you soon.
P.S. In case you are reading this and will not be able to come to visweek don’t worry I plan to provide plenty of information from the conference this year. Stay tuned!
