23 Things – Thing 13 Data

Perhaps surprisingly, I don’t actually have a lot to say about this Thing.

Thing 13 implores you to do beautiful things with data – and suggests online tools you can use to help display your data in an attractive way.  I imagine this might be useful for researchers (who, TBH 23 Things is really aimed at) but for someone in my position who works with quite sensitive data every day, I can’t really start uploading it to websites in order to display it pictorially.

Having said that Tableau is something that I am interested in looking at; other departments hold licenses for it at work (and I am aware of other Universities using it), but it is still too early days for us.  Perhaps I could look at putting some of my running data into it?  That might be a bit depressing though… 🙂
