How in the World did I end up at Facebook?

I had a great time speaking yesterday at the Data Viz Summit in SF.  This was the first time I used Prezi and it worked out really well.  What fun would it be without taking some risks, including the two live demos I gave.  I would highly encourage you to give Prezi a try.  I don’t think I’ll use PowerPoint again.

I want to give a special shout out to Martin McGinn, Namit Raisurana, Heather Torres and George Lee for the great feedback during rehearsal.  It’s great to have such a supportive team and a culture that promotes openness and honest feedback.  It made a big difference.

There was a great speaker lineup.  The videos of the talks should be available shortly after the conference and I will post my talk, plus the others then.  And I will be writing a brief summary of my favorite talks. 

In the meantime, enjoy my Prezi.
