Great stories #2: Ben Lyall

What’s the most powerful or compelling story you’ve read/watched/listened to recently?

That’s the question we put to Ben Lyall, a data science student who helped make this visualisation of Australian political donations.

“I found 538’s article on the Flint Michigan water crisis to be a quite compelling read.

“The subject matter and the bureaucracy behind the increasingly stupid decisions and then the cover-up were a compelling story in their own right but I thought the author of the article did a great job of showing the effects on the people of the city and how they forced action to be taken. And bonus points, since it’s fivethirtyeight, it has some visualisations!”

This is the second post in an ongoing series where people share great stories.
