Happy Love Data Week! This year’s theme is data stories. Formally known as Love Your Data Week, this social media event has been going on since 2016 when a group of enterprising research data specialists decided it would be a great way to raise awareness about research data management. Over the past two years, Love Data Week has grown to include participants in Europe, Asia, and Australia, and shows no sign of slowing down. The event is marked by Tweets, Facebook posts, Blog posts, webinars and live events, and this year’s theme is the broadest yet. Data stories is envisioned as an entry point for conversations about how data is being uses to shape the world around us. Sub-topics include stories about data, telling stories with data, connected conversations, and we are data.
If you or your organization would like to participate in Love Data Week, you will find a wealth of information on the website. Send your data a valentine and get involved!
