My current problem: I'm building automated weekly report, showing the same metric over time. I want to show the trend, but I want to emphasize the most recent data point. With a typical 'time on x-axis' line chart, the rightmost value is not where your attention goes. Has anyone thought through this before?

Any chess mavens out there that can give me another pair of eyes on this viz? I was interested in when the best chess players tend to castle and to which side. So I'm wondering if this viz is clear and accurate (I don't play much chess but am curious about this move!). Thanks!

I’m formulating a plan for inclusion efforts on vis.social, with the goal of making this a more diverse (and therefore more valuable and sustainable) social space.

But… I don't know what I'm doing! Please review and comment to me here, or in the doc:
