Upgraded vis.social to the next tier hosting plan, as we’ve now got almost 1,000 members! 😮
To help this experiment succeed, please contribute!
1. Share your questions, feedback, critiques, and works-in-progress. 🎨
2. Help invite & welcome others. Be as inclusive as possible. 🤝
3. Donate a little 💰, if you are in a comfortable position to do so (but 1 & 2 are more important).
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:
Thanks to @kristinHenry’s great question, I’ve asked on the forums “how to foster inclusivity and welcome new members to Mastodon”.
I loved @DisneyPixar's "Inside Out". Really enjoy this matrix combining the five base emotions with each other. I honestly think kids benefit from watching this movie as is creates a good starting point to talk about emotions. Source: https://buff.ly/2J4pA2y
A question on etiquette from someone new to Mastodon. I'm about to go to a conference, which typically means I suddenly post a ton for about four days straight.
The posts will generally all be useful, but if you're only following a handful of people and I'm one of them, I'll be dominating your feed for those days.
Is there an accepted etiquette for doing this without driving others crazy?
Any recommendations for intelligent podcasts out there in the tootosphere? Doesn't have to be dataviz related.

I'm starting a data comic strip - here is Comic #1. Supplement at https://medium.com/@Matt1Hong/how-americans-spend-each-day-a-data-comic-51817f910dd7 https://vis.social/media/L_bqtURXLdUIpNnW4HA
I know it's old news now but I'm still a little in awe of 538's Atlas of Redistricting (https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-maps/)
Do you know of interesting open data to use for visualization examples?
csv, xls or json would work
Screenshot of my scroll-bar in google photos .. is there a term for things that weren't meant to be visualizations but turned out to be?
The acceleration in photo volume in 2017 coincides with my wife getting a new camera phone and us linking our photo streams.

@giorgialupi did my first "humanist" data visualization: Handdrawn (and digitized) progress summary for the past 2 years of my research project. Leaves are papers I've contributed to and their color tone the publication status. Leaf and branch-placement indicates chronology and sizes the amount of work I contributed.
