Political Math is written by an individual with far too much free time on his hands. This blog began as a suppliment to the YouTube channel 10000Pennies, which shows data visualizations on political topics, but has evolved into more of a place to discuss data (especially BLS data), post infographics and do amateur analysis of bad infographics.
As for me (this is an “About” page, after all), after I posted my first video on a lark (seen here) I became a minor celebrity, visiting Washington DC, meeting with Senators, speaking at think tanks and conventions. This condition was thankfully temporary.
I’m open to speaking engagements (I LOVE to talk to groups and individuals about videos and data and information visualization and a little about policy, although the latter isn’t my expertise), but I will not do custom videos. Please don’t ask.
I’m not looking for fame or a fight. I just know that we live in a world filled with numbers and I want to help people understand what those numbers mean.
