Any recommendations for a panorama photo stitching tool that runs on (K)Ubuntu?

this is useful!!
zine related reference for zine making and cool tech zines. i especially like zine machine and that site itself lists a helpful resource. this is worth checking out and getting lost in.
so happy this exists! :D

Confession: I'm particularly fond of beeswarm plots. And while I usually finish up with a white background, I often like to work with a dark background for charts that are 'in-progress'.

I spent quite a few hours writing interactive documentation for #d3js on @observablehq ; it was a lot of fun — and I hope it's going to be useful!
A short report:
The documentation:
Thank you @d3js_org !

I just published my first article on a project I've been working on:

'Tracking the Advertisers: ‘ScreenDatify’ Data Collection and Project Evolution'

The part of the project is still in the works and I'm still collecting data.

If you've seen me in person at some point over the last few months, I've probably mentioned this huge project I've been working on. I'm finally starting to write about and chart the data, and I'm posting it on my Patreon to mange comments and such.

In these early explorations of the data I've been collecting, I'm getting re-acquainted with Python's Matplotlib.

"On 10 April, astrophysicists announced that they had captured the 1st ever image of a #blackhole.

No headlines mentioned that the image would have been impossible without open-source software: #Matplotlib, a #Python library for graphing data.

Just 5 days later, the NSF rejected a grant to support that ecosystem, saying that the software lacked sufficient impact.

#opensource is widely acknowledged as crucially important in science, yet it is funded non-sustainably."

You always wanted to try generative art for yourself? On 17. July I will do a workshop at Cocktails & Code in Stuttgart! Code + Art = <3

One of my many favorite things about python is that we can get the last element in a list simply with


It's just so simple, and elegant.

Looking for recommendations for . So far I've tried and , both of which seem a bit buggy in some fundamental ways.

! shows up in app store searches and seems highly rated, but so was Mast. 🤷‍♂️

Boosts appreciated. 🙏

I built a Datawrapper chart that doesn't look like a Datawrapper chart anymore 🤔

This is also the last Weekly Chart that I wrote...weekly. Starting next week, all of us start charting & writing. I explain the reasons here:

As an independent contractor, there is no one subsidizing my research projects.

Why am I posting this study on my Patreon? There are several reasons, including 1. It gives me comment and access moderation. 2. charging $1+ for access to work I've spent months on seems reasonable.
