I like HuffPo and I can usually find an article on the twitter timeline that will grab me. Most recently, it was a story about how the US doesn't provide for family leave and has a lower participation rate of women in the workforce. Last time I read a similar article about how pay equality wasn't a big issue as people were making it to be, I wrote a blogpost about how pay equality wasn't just a lady issue. This time however, it was the chart that caught my attention.
I like the idea of putting some narrative with each area that I want to call out. I had story points on the brain the other day when I attended my first hackathon at
Bread for the World Institute. I was part of a group that was working on visualization concepts to raise awareness and show the linkage between women's empowerment and stunting. Since we ran out of time, I now have another little side project to work on...telling the story of child development/stunting among various countries. I think story points could be very impactful.
Getting back to the current story, I didn't read a help file, so I've probably just scratched the surface on what story points can do and how I can really make it look sharp. The way I see it, I have lots of stories to tell, which means lots of opportunities to leverage this new feature in Tableau.
