Video: David McCandless ‘Does My Graph Look Big in This?’

Data is pretty serious, but it doesn’t have to be. London-based author, data-journalist and information designer David McCandless breaks down the humor found at the intersection of design, code, and raw data.

‘His blog and best-selling books Information Is Beautiful (2009) and Knowledge is Beautiful (2014) are dedicated to visualizing ideas, issues, knowledge and data — and to discovering novel patterns and stories in the seas of data swamping and surrounding us.’ — Visualized

Watch as McCandless illustrates data visualization ‘comedy’ through mass hysteria, drug use, international debt, Internet passwords, dog breeds, and horoscopes.

The video was recorded at the 2015 Visualized conference in New York.
