This is a very interesting read: Five Steps to Storytelling with Data. The author, Dominic Quigley, starts his article like this:
In the pre-digital era, data was a subject for mathematicians and scientists. Now, one way or another, we can’t escape it. Our constant use of online services not only relies on data, we are also a continuous source of data, generating information about all aspects of our lives. Whether it’s data about the human body—thanks to the rise of wearables—our energy consumption at home, or data tied to our personal finance: we’re creating mountains of data, and now we need to find ways to make sense of it.
It is actually a nice read. Are you interested in storytelling and want to learn how to merge this with the fascination of big data? Than this article is for you.
