Data Visualization Documentary

Really nice piece about data visualization, the potential as well as some of misapplications and missteps: Journalism in the Age of Data from geoff mcghee on Vimeo.

The focus here is on journalism (and communicating to a lay audience), but has clear application beyond that for the academic/educational context. Also some solid basic lessons about communicating information that are of value for creating simple slide decks like PowerPoint.

A few of the resources mentioned later in the video are:
