Andrew Walkinshaw of Timetric on 'numbers that vary against time' at #newsinnovation
....or, the exponential growth in the price of a cheese sandwich.
"The really interesting thing is not what these numbers are now, but what they used to be and what they are going to be."
At the London News Innovation Unconference on Friday I recorded some video clips of the presentations. This is some footage of Andrew Walkinshaw of Timetric. The opening part of Andrew's presentation was about how Timetric is mapping 'numbers that vary against time', and the work that they have done with The Guardian on the Data Blog.
Andrew was presenting about 'time series', and I was presenting about 'the tyranny of chronology', and we just about managed to avoid coming to blows about the importance of time when we met each other ;-)
Later this week I'll have more notes and video clips from the News Innovation day at NESTA.
