For those who don't know, eyeo is a visualization festival that takes place in Minneapolis this June. According to all reports, last year's inaugural festival was an amazing success, leading to this year's rendition selling out in about 6 hours!
The festival lineup is off the charts for anyone in the visualization space, with notable visionaries from around the globe presenting their slice of viz – whether it comes in the form of traditional data visualizations, or interactive art, music, or some combination of each. The attendees list is also quite impressive, based on the names I've seen thus far.
I'm looking at this as an opportunity to learn, share, and make contacts in the visualization space. The event schedule seems geared to bringing people together both during and beyond the official events, and with folks coming from all over the globe, it figures to be a very exciting event.
Unfortunately, I have to wait until June, but that gives me plenty of time to plan and to learn more from some of the great talents in the field.
