WHEN WE WERE FIRST APPROACHED WITH THE IDEA OF A FOLLOW-UP TO BEAUTIFUL CODE, THIS TIME about data, we found the idea exciting and very ambitious. Collecting, visualizing, and processing data now touches every professional field and so many aspects of daily life that a great collection would have to be almost unreasonably broad in scope. So we contacted a highly diverse group of people whose work we admired, and were thrilled that so many agreed to contribute.


This book is the result, and we hope it captures just how wide-ranging (and beautiful) working with data can be. In it you’ll learn about everything from fighting with governments to working with the Mars lander; you’ll learn how to use statistics programs, make visualizations, and remix a Radiohead video; you’ll see maps, DNA, and something we can only really call “data philosophy.”


The royalties for this book are being donated to Creative Commons and the Sunlight Foundation, two organizations dedicated to making the world better by freeing data. We hope you’ll consider how your own encounters with data shape the world.
