What they say
In addition to a great deal of data visualization experience, Jorge is one of the world’s great experts in Excel; he’s one of those guys who can make Excel do things that were never intended or imagined and certainly never directly supported by its creators.
Jorge Camoes has a mission. He wants to help the world make sense of the ocean of data that we are beginning to swim in. Jorge wants you to understand and make sense of data (…) I’m going to email the URL of his blog to colleagues who work with me in the Cabinet Office. Wouldn’t it be great if could help present our data in some of the exciting formats he examines on his site.
