In a world where information is being shared in a high volume, velocity, variety and veracity having an idea what to read and manage to find good resources becomes very difficult.

Let’s get started.

The Center for Data Innovation is a non-profit research institute affiliated with the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation. It is headed by Daniel Castro (“top 25 most influential people under 40 in government and tech” acc to FedScoop). I like their Reports and Visialization sections. They publish a a free weekly newsletter with news on data and data sicne, posts, events and showcase great data visualizations and interesting data sets ofr the past week.
