Just made this fancy time-warped plot of atmospheric CO2 concentration over the past 800,000 years... https://www.reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful/comments/ct9ifm/oc_co2_concentration_in_atmosphere_over_last/

Had a nice train ride from Madrid to Pamplona with Alberto Cairo. We had good discussion about the Data Vis Society, Datawrapper, Flourish, and the good life in Miami. Saw a preview of his new book (https://junkcharts.typepad.com/junk_charts/2019/03/book-preview-how-charts-lie-by-alberto-cairo.html)! But then he fell asleep, recovering from his transatlantic flight..
the result is sort of interesting. for some months, like July and August the temp. increase really has picked up the pace in the late 1960s. But for October the increases seem to be a lot more "linear". Might be just some Loess artifacts.
And today I forked Adams chart to use Loess regression instead of the linear model, because I thought temperature isn't increasing linearly (but maybe exponentially?)
A few days ago @1wheel made a nice version of the chart that also shows the individual temperatures as points + linear trend lines

Seven years ago, Datawrapper started as a paper sketch by Mirko Lorenz. Can't believe we're now a company of 11 people and 100% self-funded! I'm incredibly happy to be working with this team every day! Thanks to our customers for making this possible! ❤️ https://www.datawrapper.de/about-us/
In light of the FusionTables shut-down announcement yesterday we need to think about the durability and sustainability of online data journalism -- especially the interactive pieces.
The Guardian "warlogs" interactive from 2010 is 404ing and embedded FusionTables are already down https://www.theguardian.com/warlogs
The "dark age of data journalism" seems to be here already https://www.vox.com/2015/11/9/9623002/data-journalism-archive
look at these few lines of JS code to see how easy it is to make a pie chart in D3
data > Array(18) [Object, Object, Object,...]
format > ƒ m(t)
color > ƒ i(i)
