I drove into Estes Park at sunrise, arriving early to prep for a demo that afternoon at the Tapestry conference on data storytelling. I was planning to facilitate a live, interactive, hands-on data visualization exercise, but I hadn't planned to sketch the presentations throughout the day. But when I joined my colleagues for the morning keynote, I found a pad of paper (and a somewhat sloppy ballpoint pen) that the Stanley Hotel had provided for each attendee. And of course, I couldn't resist.
Below is a collection of my notes from the eight speakers that followed, each contributing to a delightful, varied conversation about the many nuances of telling stories with data. Be sure to check out the last two incredible keynotes!
