We are pleased to announce that Mike Bostock will be featured as the opening keynote speaker for FOSS4G 2014.
Bostock designs interactive graphics for The New York Times. He is also the author of D3.js, a popular open-source library for visualizing data using web standards, and TopoJSON, an extension to GeoJSON that encodes topology.
D3.js is one of the most exciting visualization technologies to appear recently, and we’re very excited to have Mike at FOSS4G. You can see some of his work at his website and be sure to check out his numerous elegant D3.js examples at http://bl.ocks.org/mbostock.
