Every time we go somewhere we meet wonderful people doing awesome data visualization projects, and great startupers with sparkles in their eyes interested in our startup experience. It’s a pity these people often don’t meet each other.

We happen to be in Istanbul in a week and decided to throw a meetup on July 21st in Yazane coworking space at 18.00.

The project “In Climbing Income Ladder, Location Matters" by The New York Times is awarded the Best Data Story in Public Vote by Infogr.am at Data Journalism Awards 2014 (DJA 2014) organised by Global Editors Network (GEN).

"We want to thank the voters on Infogr.am and GEN summit organisers. It has been important investment from The New York Times and it’s great to see it paying off. What matters most is being recognised by the people who are reading and interacting with these great works", says Paul Smurl, General Manager of Core Digital Projects at The New York Times.

The project was shortlisted from the twelve DJA 2014 finalists in the category “Data story or group of stories on a single topic, online or print”. It was among five best projects picked by the Infogr.am expert group and put for a public vote. Over 2,000 Infogr.am users worldwide made their choice on the best data driven story this year.

"We created Infogr.am to let everyone do great data visualisations, to inspire people to look for insights in the data. The story by The New York Times is a great example of reader engagement on a crucial matter. It inspires us and everyone who reads it", says Uldis Leiterts, the co-founder of Infogr.am

GEN summit is the Global Editors Network annual event. The DJA 2014 ceremony brings together over 500 media decision makers to celebrate the excellence in data journalism.

Infogr.am will award the best data driven story at the Data Journalism Awards 2014, organised by Global Editors Network on June 12, in Barcelona. Help us pick the winner!

Our existing logo was great, we loved it. However there was a feeling that it no longer is in a perfect shape to reflect values of our fast-growing company. So we took Illustrator and days of hard work re-designing it. Now it’s up to you to judge. We’re excited to present our brand new logo (see comparison with the old one below). 

Also Jifo has experienced a major face-lift. 

Oliver! He is the author of the most delicious Pie Chart telling us how awesome plain cheese pica is. The stomach starts growl - literally.

Here is his story:

"I have been a fan and creator of data visualizations and infographics for several years now, so I was excited to find out about infogr.am's Pie Chart Contest. Coincidentally, just before the contest was announced, a friend had been teasing me about my preference for plain cheese pizza, and told me that adults do not like it. This prompted me to launch an informal poll on this topic on my Facebook page, which provided the data that I visualized on infogr.am. And, more importantly, I was able to prove to my friend that adults DO in fact like plain cheese pizza!”

Indeed: Cheese Pizza Opinions

As a winner Oliver gets his favourite pie and the special t-shirt designed to honor Pi(e) Day. 

Don’t know about the t-shirt, but Oliver is going to share his pie with colleagues in the Laboratory for Ubiquitous Computing and Interaction at UC Irvine. Well, Bon Apetit!

The Pi Day is coming! All the math and greek letter geeks unite in 3/14/14. But what is Pi without a Pie?
