My Last Day as a New York Times Graphics Editor Intern

Posted to The Times  |  Nathan Yau

Today is my last day at The New York Times. Ten weeks and twenty something graphics later, I’m leaving NYC much more knowledgeable about data visualization and journalism and how they can make a powerful pair. It’s a bittersweet ending today.

On the one hand, it’s been amazing working for such a prominent newspaper, but on the other, I’m also looking forward to taking a few days off doing nothing and then moving forward towards finishing, err, starting my dissertation. Do I know my topic? No, not really, but one thing’s for sure. Data visualization is what I want to do and I’ve been extremely fortunate to have learned from some of the best this summer.

Onward ho.
