Data gets personal
It was a real pleasure to sit down with some really excellent practitioners of the craft that occupies so much of my time.
Using personalisation and interactivity to make data-heavy stories on dry topics engaging and shareable for a bigger audience impact.
It was a fairly wide ranging conversation I won't try to summarise here, but Walkley Foundation—the organisers of the conference—have promised to make a recording available which I'll post here when it arrives. However, I did make a collection of links to personalised data stories collected from the panelists as inspiration for our conversation.
I also spoke briefly in a separate session about my main project for the 2016 Australian federal election, ABC NewsBot.
For this talk I did a slightly more technical and detailed version of the ABC NewsBot story. Check out the slides if you're interested.
