David McCandless turns complicated data units, like worldwide navy spending, media buzz, and Facebook standing updates, into lovely, easy diagrams that tease out unseen patterns and connections. Good design, he suggests, is one of the simplest ways to navigate data glut — and it could simply change the way in which we see the world.

    Its interesting that he considers himself left-leaning. Everything he said seemed to imply he would be more liberal, freedom-loving and inevitably right-leaning.

    Would be interesting to see his "mountains out of molehills" chart factoring in Covid-19

  • TED-Ed
    November 9, 2020

    I like when they all have a good laugh about the panic over SARS, bird flu and swine flu. Mountains out of molehills, I'd have laughed along too but in 2020 it seems less like a comment on media hysteria and more a cautionary tale of what happens when you fail to acknowledge the warning signs.

    "…seeing the political perspective versus being told or forced to listen."
    "visualizing" information can often give us quick and effective solutions.

    With over 1.50Lakhs confirmed cases of COVID-19 in India, I along with my brother(Senior Data Scientist) has implemented the COVID-19 India Tracker Shiny app using R.

    With no prior experience in R, I learn how easily this language allows you to import, clean, manipulate, and visualize data-all integral skills for any aspiring data professional or researcher. I would recommend all my linked connections with similar interests looking to boost their R skills and wanting to learn to make an Interactive Dashboard for Web Apps should try out this awesome course by DataCamp.

    It is one of the best courses which I have completed to succeed with this project.

    Also, I have noticed that DataCamp is giving 75% off access to all the courses for free for one week starting from 26th May running until June 2, 8 PM ET. So this would literally be the best time to grab some monthly subscriptions(which I have) which basically has unlimited access to all the courses and other things on DataCamp and make fruitful use of your time sitting at home during this Pandemic.
