Balchin in a 1972 address to the annual conference of the Geographical Association http://www.jstor.org.access.library.miami.edu/stable/40567805?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents https://vis.social/media/ksaOqPSmg7O8533vhb4
vis.social is an open social platform for creative people, especially anyone in SciArt, SciComm, data, visualization, creative coding, and related arts and research. English is the common language of the instance.
