Very excited for #Outlier2021 :D
An amazing speaker lineup:
I'm hosting an *unconference* session myself on how to improve data literacy =)
Currently live: Caroline Goulard from https://dataveyes.com/, on: "The Power of Data Viz Over Black Boxes"
An interesting insight:

»Empowering Technologies increase our ability to explore large volumes of data«
Not sure about that sentence because it's always huge companies who get that ability first (and more of it). For them, the ability to exploit huge volumes of user data is way more empowering than it could be for a (non-selfish) individual, although it can absolutely be used to good ends.
