We are living in the Information Age, in which we are constantly bombarded with data – on television, in print and online. How can we relate to this mind-numbing overload?
Enter David McCandless and his amazing infographics. Yes, on 10th November, the bestselling author of INFORMATION IS BEAUTIFUL and KNOWLEDGE IS BEAUTIFUL and king of infographics is at Salon Digital to reveal unexpected—and much needed—positive developments from around the world.
In his unique signature style, David will be showing us dazzling displays that blend facts with their connections, contexts and relationships, making information meaningful, entertaining – and beautiful. The subject of his latest book: BEAUTIFUL NEWS: POSITIVE TRENDS, UPLIFTING STATS, CREATIVE SOLUTIONS.
At a time when the world has never seemed more dangerous and unpredictable, David will be focusing on fascinating positive developments and drawing from philosophy, spirituality, ecology, society, technology, history, science, economics, and pop culture, to reveal positive trends and developments, from the invention of a breakthrough device that uses ocean forces to clean plastic from the world’s seas, to a new method of converting donated blood to the crucial “O” negative type that can be used universally.
David will be in conversation with Jonathan Paterson. Jonathan is a freelance journalist and consultant who spent two decades with the BBC, initially travelling the world's hotspots, before realising there were people far braver than him, and returning to London for a series of senior editorial roles. Most recently Head of Video for BBC News digital platforms, he also worked for Newsnight and Radio 4.
Come and join us for a shot of positivity that will lift the spirts and provide sorely needed hope about our world in a way never before seen.
