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

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.

Hey @andykirk’s short film “The Malofiej Experience” is really great to watch, if you’re like me and haven’t been able to spare a week plus travel time to go to Pamplona: visualisingdata.com/2018/03/ne

Here's my (delayed) latest monthly round-up of the best data visualisation stuff found during January visualisingdata.com/2018/04/be (posted image, work by @smallmultiples)

A version of 'The Malofiej Experience' film has now been published with English subtitles visualisingdata.com/2018/03/ne

Having been shown at last night's closing session @malofiej I'm now delighted to publicly publish the film I produced with Matt Knott, "THE MALOFIEJ EXPERIENCE" visualisingdata.com/2018/03/ne

Hi Mastodonians, I'm very inactive on here at the moment for two primary reasons:

1) Unbelievably and unsustainably busy, hoping somethings gives in three weeks

2) I still don't know how I intend to use this place and how to fit visiting, reading and contributing alongside the other places.

More enlightening updates when they reach me...

“Strange Bird” is a new podcast “about the data behind our everyday lives with Mona Chalabi.”

And it’s published through a new UI by the Guardian Mobile Lab — part audio player, part chatbot, part photo viewer. It includes lots of charts, too!
