Big thanks to all those who attended and helped make happen our Data is Power event this week. The breakfast seminar at the RSA was designed to get the grey matter going on the subject of data visualisation, with the help of our fabulous speakers: Simon Rogers of The Guardian and Vicky Ames of Alzheimer’s Society.

Elsewhere on the web there have been some great write-ups from others: Steph Grey, who was our social reporter for the day, has summed up one of the key themes with his post Telling Stories with Data; and Simon Francis has picked up on the Risks and Rewards of Data Power.

Here’s Ben talking about Data is Power and our Pollen service for digital PR of events just like this one.
