Piece by piece, the world is moving onto the web. “Things informationalize,” as Ben Cerveny puts. How can we make sense of this new torrent of information emerging wide-eyed and blinking into the internet? Stamen Technical Directory;s Michal Migurski will show how information visualization is making it possible to comprehend a live, vast, and deep connected web of data. We’ll cover emerging work in the field as well as Stamen’s own work in the area of data and map design.
Stamen partner Michal Migurski leads the technical and research aspects of Stamen’s work, moving comfortably from active participation in Stamen’s design process, designing data, prototyping applications, to creating the dynamic projects that Stamen delivers to clients.
Michal has been building for the web since 1995, specializing in big, exciting datasets and the means to communicate and disseminate them to broad audiences for a variety of clients. He speaks publicly on these and other topics to academic and industry audiences, participates actively in a variety of open source development efforts, maintains an active weblog at mike.teczno.com, holds a degree in Cognitive Science from UC Berkeley.
