Maps of Time: Data As Narrative
    What's the relationship between visualized data and the story we want to tell? Living in the eternal now, surrounded by our tweets, facebook posts and other copious amounts of social and highly personalized information, we forget the importance of history and historical reasoning and influence in our work. Which events were the most important in my last year or decade of tweets? How would I know? What would a map of time look like, fashioned out of the data? How would one map one's own life? In this panel, a mix of academics, news media professionals and narrative tool developers talk about how to turn data into maps of time. Together we will go on a journey to understand and visualize time, history and context, to reason about what it means to gather and express collective history.
