A Love for Real-Time Data

Jack Dorsey, Square

Square and Twitter Co-Founder Jack Dorsey shares his childhood experience of falling in love with maps, while growing up in St. Louis, Missouri. Dorsey taught himself to program computers because he wanted to design maps, an activity that led to his deeper exploration of dispatch software development. Dorsey describes his early exposure to data visualization as, the “most beautiful thing that I could visualize, a city living and breathing.”
