Design, Data, and Discovery at TEDx

Last Thursday, Schema founder Christian Marc Schmidt presented a talk on the power and potential of data visualization at TEDx San Francisco’s annual “Dare to Know” event.

The audience learned how data visualization and design can help us cope with information anxiety, how to explore digital data like we explore cities, and he inspired audience members to awaken their desire for discovery by becoming “information archeologists.” As he noted, "We need ways to see the stories and connections within the vast amount of information around us." We’ll be sharing a video of the talk soon and expanding on these topics on Medium, too.

Thanks so much to TEDx San Francisco for the exciting opportunity to share thoughts on the importance of thoughtful design and innovative data visualization.
