VizThink is gathering visual thinkers from all corners of the world to create the first global community dedicated to the use of visualization in all forms of learning and communication. VizThink was initially conceived by Dave Gray, Chairman of Xplane. A long time proponent of Visual Communication, Dave envisoned the creation of a global community of visual thinkers. In 2006 XPLANE expanded to Europe through a new office in Madrid, Spain. While in Europe Dave became acquainted with Rodolfo Carpintier of Digital Assets Deployment, a business incubator firm in Madrid. Through their conversations the concept of VizThink was raised and Mr. Carpintier, who has a successful history of building organizations that revolve around community, was enthused by the idea and decided to fund it. In July of 2007, after about six months of planning, VizThink was launched.
