The Best People in Data Visualisation Today
I went to a talk by David McCandless about his work visualising data.
After the talk, my wife picked up a signed copy of his new book “Knowledge is Beautiful”. I asked him who the best people in data visualisation are today. I asked him to boil it down to the top names so this list is by no means exhaustive.

There is also David McCandless (@mccandelish). Doesn’t seem to have a blog on his website but he occasionally writes about data visualisation for the Guradian and on the book’s website: Information is Beautiful.
