Just cross-posting an event announcement from a kindred local group, Baltimore Refresh. JESS3 is apparently the s**t! Enjoy.
Refresh Bmore is back! We're announcing an event, a week from
this Thursday for our Revival Refresh with renowned web / graphic

EVENT TOPIC: Data Visualization
As individuals and companies across the world rely more and more
heavily on social media, data visualization has become
indispensable for not only displaying analytics and metrics, but
also in understanding macro and micro trends by platform, network
JESS3 CEO and Founder Jesse Thomas' talk will explore information
design, data visualization, relationship mapping and statistics --
and how they all fit together to create compelling infographics,
data visualizations and dynamic dashboards in hot pursuit of the
holy grail of information design: make it more digestible and

on the web: The Conversation Prism (http://theconversationprism.com)
