A documentary on data journalism by Geoff McGhee via Flowing Data, who name-check some of the people interviewed:
Martin Wattenberg and Fernanda Viègas kick things off with some of the work they did with IBM. Then it’s Ben Fry from Fathom, then Jeffrey Heer from Stanford, and then Steve Duenes, Matt Ericson, and Amanda Cox of The New York Times. Later on, there’s some Nicholas Felton on his Feltron Reportand Eric Rodenbeck of Stamen, with several others.
You can watch it below, but I recommend viewing the annotated version which adds links and references as you go. It’s really nicely done.
I grabbed a few links provided in the tools section:
