Data Visualization Hall of Fame
We need to develop and disseminate an entirely new paradigm and practice of collaboration that supersedes the traditional silos that have divided governments, philanthropies and private enterprises for decades and replace it with networks of partnerships working together to create a globally prosperous society.

Finding the right visual method is only half the battle though, and I wish we talked more about the other half. Providing context, showing our own uncertainty, offering some narrative and guidance are all things that are critical to augmenting a user’s experience and understanding. If we want to improve the visual data literacy of our audience, then we are responsible for providing those things.– Irene Ros, Bocoup, interviewed in October, 02, 2014
