Big announcement: I have a new job! Monday is my first day at Datawrapper, where I will help to make even better data vis tools. 🙌 https://www.datawrapper.de/
Our frontend developer @email@example.com built the most beautiful small multiple pie & donut charts: https://blog.datawrapper.de/better-piecharts/
I truly like the #100daysofandnotor series by @ktzhuTo@twitter.com: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/100daysofandnotor/ It shows how often we feel like we need to put ourselves in boxes, to feel like we make "sense". And that it's really not necessary to do so.

sneak preview of new blog post I've been working on. Join me for an introduction to Altair - a new(ish) python package for declarative interactive data visualization!
done in my traditional far-to-wordy rambling style.
But I am really excited about using Altair, and hopefully you will be too after reading 1/3rd this post before giving up and just reading the Altair docs!
http://informationplusconference.com/ call for proposals. 2016 was fantastic. 2018 will be equally stellar, if the quality of the website is any indication. :) (Always judge a conference by its website UX.)
