This is a short notice to all FILWD readers who are going to VisWeek 2011. I will be there the full week starting from Sat Oct 22th and I would love to meet some of you guys. There are two main events you might be interested in.

Data Visualization Blogging Dinner

If you are going to visweek it would be just awesome to spend some time together in front of a hot meal and a good drink. I’d love to see your faces in real flesh!

If you are interested (even if you are not sure to come) please sign up to this google group I just set up - Vis Blogging Dinner – VisWeek 2011 - and we’ll find a suitable place and time to spend some time together. Ok? Please sign up as soon as you can so that I will be able to reserve a place to stay.

Blogging about Data Visualization BOF

I am trying to set up together with Robert Kosara (EagerEyes) a Birds-of-Feathers during visweek to meet people interested in data visualization blogging. Everyone is welcome (bloggers, aspiring bloggers, blog readers, etc.) The meeting will be totally informal and we plan to give advice on how to blog about vis (in case you want to hear it from us of course :-) and to hear from you guys whatever idea you have on how to make data visualization blogging better/funnier/stronger/etc.

Catch me!

Apart from that we can always meet in the hotel during the week if you feel like. If you see me around and want to have a chat or share a drink or just say hi please catch me! I added a picture of myself here below so that it’s easier for you to recognize me (I hope).

If you are not going to VisWeek …

I plan to record a video from visweek at the end of each day to provide a summary and thoughts. I also plan to write more about what will happen at visweek later this week. Stay tuned!

    Hi – I think I joined the group, but I don’t see any thread yet? So far, any night Wed-Fri is good for me.

      Hi Lynn, great to know you’ll join the group. I actually started a thread in the google group, are you sure you don’t see anything? I just asked input from all of you guys who want to participate. I’ll try to send another email soon. Let me know if it works.

    Hi! I just read the two words “dinner” and “informal” – so count me in! ;-)

    For all Google-critics like me out there: you can also “silently” follow the Google group activities by subscribing to its RSS or Atom feed @ https://groups.google.com/group/vis-blogging-dinner/feeds

    Cheers, Hans-Jörg (treevis.net)
