Dispatches from the first Chart Day

SND is on Capitol Hill today, working with our friends from Tumblr to hold International Chart Day. A number of sites have gotten into it; I’ll be posting updates throughout the day.

Roll Call is covering the event, and has posted a video with tips for Congressmen to create better floor charts.

Storytelling With Data has sent out a call to celebrate the day.

Quartz explains why the pie chart — “data visualization’s greatest villian” — will never die.

The Tumblr conversation is here.

The Twitter conversation is happening on #chartday or #internationalchartday
