Where: Huggins Science Hall, Room 10
When: Tuesday, March 24, 2015 @7:00PM
Title: Data Visualization at the New York Times
Amanda will discuss what news graphics have taught her about data visualization (distributuions are more interesting than averages, a lot of good songs have backup singers, the annotation layer is very important).

Reception to follow. All welcome.
