Speaking at Mediamatic – Barcamp: Data-Visualization

I am really delighted as I have been invited to do a presentation of “Get a life” at Barcamp this Saturday 7th of May 2011.
The thematic of the day will focus on data visualization. I will talk about the benefit of using the game environment to disseminate data to a broad audience.
The event will be hosted by my dear friends Dan Brickley and Zoja Bajbutovic. I hope to see you there!
