Below you will find an embedded slideshare version of the slides used in last week's pair of talks at Orbitz HQ and the inaugural Chicago Data Viz meetup. As I've said a few times before, I'm a reluctant sharer of slides, not because I'm protective of my material, but because they serve as purely visual prompts for the talk so when read out of context they are hard to fully understand and appreciate some of the details. For that reason I'm shortly going to follow up with an article specifically on the subject of the '8 hats', a subject I think is important for any visualisation or infographic designer.
