For my first viz on my new shiny blog I wanted to dive into something that I care passionately about. There were many possibilities, including but not limited to:
- Something Science-y
- Something regarding my awesome hometown of KCMO (Gotta rep the town!)
WHAT DOES THE DATA SAY?According to a 2008 blog entry by Britannica (yes, the encyclopedia giant has gone digital…and they are blogging!) rock n roll was born in 1948 for several reasons including:
- WWII was winding down and, as a result, when the soldiers came back communities became more diverse than ever so pop began mixing with the rhythm & blues.
- A fellow from California, Leo Fender, would forever change the music landscape when he started mass producing the first electric guitar.
- The invention of 12″ LP record. Artists could now have more room to experiment with their music.
