Some sad news to share this week: Hans Rosling, the renowned statistician and pioneer in data visualization best remembered for Gapminder, died on February 7. If you're not familiar with his work, do yourself a favour: watch his TED talk from 2006, and share his passion for telling stories with data.
Robert Kosara also has a lovely remebrance of his achievements and influence.
That's all from us for this week. We'll be back on Monday — see you then.
