Hello peoples of the information superhighway. I’m excited to announce that I have decided to create a blog about data. For the past few years, my involvement in the world of data visualization and analysis has grown exponentially…and I’ve loved every minute of it. So why did I decide to start a data blog? Well, there are a few reasons:
- I have discovered a wonderful community of data enthusiasts and wanted to become a part of it. I have learned a great deal from blogs such as DataRemixed, Tableau Love, Health Intelligence and VizNinja just to name a few.
- Tableau – A magnificent self-service Business Intelligence tool that has transformed my career. My own data visualizations in this blog (vizzes for us in the biz) will utilize Tableau Public. A free version of the software designated for public data and sharing.
- At the encouragement of my lovely wife Hilary and peers at Discovery Communications.
- Finally, because I recently found out that January is Data Blogging Month.
I can’t wait to get started. I hope you’ll enjoy what I have to offer and come back to interact with me and my vizzes.
Thanks for stopping by and have a nice
data day. (see what I did there)
