Twitter is a horror show, @scott has given us sanctuary here... let's try and make vis.social work! Lot's of people talking about and moving to Mastodon this week, but nobody know how it works?

Finally realized this thing I've been day-dreaming of for months. Its nowhere close to done but I'm so stoked

Needed to compute color contrast procedurally today for labels inside of a heatmap, really enjoyed this stack overflow post. Thank you internet.

Started turning some of my data visuals into 3d prints. Thought I'd share! This is a density map of where baseballs are hit on the field

Is anyone else here building data exploration interfaces? What's your stack? Link to recent work!

I'm in react / d3 / canvas

Hi all! I'm Colin, I work on interactive data exploration web applications in React & D3/canvas/svg.

I specialize in visualizations that involve machine learning / statistical inference involved at some level, and right now my visualization work is in the sciences.

My most recent work is here: nextstrain.org/ and I have a large project I'm excited to share once it's out of alpha :)

Thanks for putting this together @scott!
