Damn fine Dem donor maps

The New York Times’ maps just keep getting better, with this fascinating look at where the US democrats get their funding offering surprising insight into the geographic divides — and alliances — of the country. It’s also amazing to have these data — in South Africa, political funding is still secret. It’s also staggering to see the amounts raised.

  • Journalist, developer, community builder, newsletter creator and international man of mystery, Jason was one of the first South Africans to really grasp the importance of data in the newsroom and has remained one step ahead of the trends in the field all the way. Even Naked Data was conceived before email newsletters were cool again. But what does that tell you about the measure of the man? Nothing, that's what. He hides the superman CV behind a truly mild-mannered and overly modest persona and is best described as "one of the nicest guys in the business". When he's angry, it is righteously so, and his anger always wears velvet mittens. The true signs of his genius include the ability to create multilingual puns on demand (witness the alternative Naked Data strap "Putting the heita in to data") and the fact that he offered me a job.
