I've been playing around with board-gamey curves since reading this great post on the design space for timelines http://10qviz.org/timelines-revisited/
pungent and punny pie-chart art by @firstname.lastname@example.org!
I started hanging out with the Data Viz Society. They seem pretty cool.
I already have two and don't tweet, but RJ Andrews is giving away copies of Info We Trust on Twitter. I'm a little more than halfway through and I've found it inspiring: https://twitter.com/infowetrust/status/1093551078698713088

Julie Moronuki on "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Metaphor" (she's also a functional programmer) was great too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMl3Y9r3HFA

So I cast off my 2018 temperature blanket on Jan 1st and I am so pleased with how it turned out. I knit one garter stitch row every day for 365 days based on the daily high temp for my city. It was a very rewarding project. #knitting
playing around with gganimate, maybe making a talking pie chart.
related to my last post, I suspect these beeswarm timeline thingos are gonna be big in 2019.
