There's a new "data visualization society" slack channel. Not sure what it's about, and I'm reluctant to join another crowded Slack. Slack isn't a good medium for group discussions, I think... https://medium.com/data-visualization-society/introducing-the-data-visualization-society-d13d42ab0bec
⚠️Summer internship alert⚠️
Have some starter data/viz skills and stacks of drive, but haven't had a chance to prove yourself yet? We want to hear from you!

Hey folks. A publication I work for is currently commissioning short pieces of data journalism.
They should be less than 1000w, and about interesting things happening in the world at the intersection of science, technology and culture. It’ll go in our newsletter, so no interactives but images are fine. We can pay £250/$300 for each one, but get your skates on because we need them within the next two weeks. Email email@example.com with a pitch if you're interested.
I have a favor to ask: Please go to
…and invite a friend who you think should be here on vis.social.
New registrations are still suspended, to keep out spambots. But you can use the link above to welcome in other humans. :)
Been playing around with Observable, and I had a go at replicating a lovely bit of computer art I saw in Paris last week: https://beta.observablehq.com/@duncangeere/structure-de-quadrilateres
Please take a moment and fill out the 2018 Data Visualization Survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSft5kH866hkyVbxqe8Cl7mJDBLbpy5aWIHmYP5ztdO8RDattg/viewform
Elijah Meeks did this last year, and provide lots of good insights and discussions around the data viz industry
Has anyone tried or played around with Orange? https://orange.biolab.si
Interesting chart from Washington Post, a circle beeswarm, with circle packing within each parent node. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/local/school-shootings-database/
I haven't tried it yet, but RStudio just rolled out experimental support for previewing D3 scripts. R to D3 is a pretty scary bridge that I haven't fully made it across, but the r2d3 package looks like it makes the journey a lot easier.
Amazing! @p_maravich successfully identified the viz I was looking for. Thanks everyone :) https://www.behance.net/gallery/25500419/Food-Poisoning-Information-is-Beautiful-Shortlist
Would you kind folks mind helping me track down a viz that I remember seeing, but can't find now?
It was a bubble chart showing different diseases, but each bubble was decorated so they look like the actual pathogen - the bug, or virus, or bacteria that causes it. Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Wrote a bit about how I made my disappearing languages data visualisation, if anyone is interested: https://storythings.com/how-we-made-our-disappearing-languages-data-visualization-d9f22e0580c (the essay itself is here: https://interactive.howwegettonext.com/endangeredlanguages/)
My second-ever data visualisation is live! It's about the world's endangered languages. Any feedback from you seasoned pros would be very welcome :)
