Data literacy: people and initiatives


Hi there!

Data Literacy is a quite new but growing domain. Who? What? Where? Below is a quick compilation of identified initiatives and people involved. I have put in particular most past speakers at Data Literacy Conference but also went further (including some initiatives where data literacy is not their core activity). Should we need a map? a directory? a “twitter accounts related to”? Should we include data designers? Probably we would need to make categories: education, business, non-profit… What about initiatives closed to data literacy but not really related to such as OpenStreetMap cartoparties, data labs (including very different initiatives)? What about software companies such as Qlik, Tableau, etc.?
