Fair Warning - More maps than you can shake a stick at
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #55 • View online
Well, today was a hell of a week for me in London - I gave a talk about Fair Warning on Tuesday and then ran a workshop on data visualisation Friday. I saw old friends and made new ones. Not often that I have a week so busy and interesting!

Sometimes I make an exception here for a piece of non-data/non-visual journalism that is so incredible I think you must read it. This week, I was stunned by this amazingly raw and honest long read about mental health by Hannah Jane Parkinson. She’s amazing.

In the spirit of not being a really terrible person after that last link, I will roughly point out why I think this deserves to be named and shamed:
1) There are two pairs of drivers with the same colour.
2) Why is everyone else in there, making it look like the yellow is the biggest slice? Who even are these people?
3) SCHUMACHER DOESN’T EVEN DRIVE ANYMORE
Just... ???????
