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
Our group at Microsoft Research recently released #Charticulator: a new interactive tool for bespoke visualization design, and we'd love to hear your feedback.
You can use it in your browser at https://charticulator.com, where you'll also find a gallery along with video tutorials.
Charticulator is open source at github.com/microsoft/charticulator
We also wrote a paper about Charticulator for IEEEVIS, which received an Honorable Mention for Best Paper: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/uploads/prod/2018/08/Charticulator-InfoVis2018.pdf

Work on the second edition of my book has begun. I’ve cleared my office wall and launched into using a (patent pending) method called “Kirk’s To-Do, Doing, Done Book Work Board” (KTDDBWB). Task number one is going up on to the ‘doing’ rectangle as we speak. The book's tight development timeline means I have an October deadline to finalise the script/contents/images in order to hit a May/June 2019 publish date. (So please don't anyone be put off continuing to buy the current edition!)

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.
