Think I'm going to spend a bit of time getting used to this place and the different timeline features before I work out and pursue a 'follow' strategy

My book is due to hit its 2nd birthday next week. Seems like I finished it only yesterday but work is due to commence on the 2nd edition shortly. I'd be really grateful for any satisfied book owners to submit short positive reviews on Amazon (or wherever they bought it) to help shape the nature of this 2nd edition release. The more satisfied people are, the less likely I will face huge amounts of changes, edits and beyond-scope additions. Thank you in advance!

Ahead of the Champions League final, I wanted to learn more about the comparative club careers of the expected starting XIs. Liverpool are younger, fewer titles. Real Madrid have a very established team that holds far more combined apps, goals and, significantly, experience as multi-winners.

Looks like there are some strange non-vis related accounts popping up in the Local Timeline. Nice chance to test out the block/mute features on here

With my hotel room in Edinburgh overlooking the Royal Mile one cannot escape the sound of bagpipes. Using my bathroom and nearby props here's my sentiment towards them over the past couple of hours.

2018 is nearly 4 months old. What's a great vis project you've seen this year so far? Doesn't need to be the 'best' project just one that totally resonated with you for whatever reason?

Let me kick off with my declared love for this piece srf.ch/static/srf-data/data/20

Why?
- Great variety of chart methods
- The thumbnail orientation device in the sidebar
- The composition, uses the scrollable vertical canvas so well and is arranged so neatly into the screen width
- The administrative footnotes

Have just caught up with @scott and @jschwabish Policy Viz podcast where they chat about vis.social. Great overview Scott. It has also motivated me to carve out time to get more active on here and to work out a strategy for how to use it vs. other platforms, who to follow etc.
