Desde Tactical Technology Collective, uno de los colectivos infoactivistas más activos en materia de creación de contenidos, y sobre todo, guías y manuales, publicaron este libro / manual / guía muy interesante para entender formas de visualizar la información.
Nota: en el original se llama “Visualising information for advocacy”. Nunca sé bien cómo traducir advocacy. Deja en los comentarios una propuesta más solida para esta entrada si la sabes.
