Hi, folks. I no longer have the capacity to run vis.social. Thank you for all of your donations over the past year to cover the costs. We're now spending ~$55/mo. on hosting, plus some administrative costs (like the domain name).

Anyone interested in shepherding vis.social?

I got this lovely old typewriter now but the fact that the backspace key points forward almost drives me crazy. It makes sense kind of, but still 😱

I found this link via @sophiewarnes' excellent 'Fair Warning' newsletter and I think you should subscribe, too tinyletter.com/fairwarning

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 (junkcharts.typepad.com/junk_ch)! But then he fell asleep, recovering from his transatlantic flight..
