Yesterday's Data Vis Book Club (@datavisclub) about RJ Andrews' "Info We Trust" was really fun. Thanks to @infowetrust for answering our questions, and to everyone who participated in the discussion! It's all preserved here: notes.datawrapper.de/p/bookclu

Shaping up to be a solid month of March for :datavizcamp: 📖. Excited for the book club meeting on Tuesday, organized by @lisacrost

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.

Scrolling down in @13pt@twitter.com's "NASA’s Opportunity Rover Dies on Mars" is a great, great joy. I remain a big fan of longer-than-wide maps: nytimes.com/interactive/2019/0

So @DavidKokkelink@twitter.com just showed me a site called @tradingview@twitter.com ("millions of traders chart-speak every day"), which has a lot of fascinating chart designs already – but then they are people who create art with it (tradingview.com/chart/USDCHF/7), and this just made my day.

Very excited to give a talk at the @UNGeneva@twitter.com today, for their event "Designed for Science - Complex Ideas in Clear Focus": reg.unog.ch/event/28009/ If you're in town, come by! It's free and you can still register

I'm fascinated by looong scrollytelling maps, like this one by @PostGraphics@twitter.com: washingtonpost.com/graphics/na. So I made a map of Chile with our new tooltips ...although when on mobile, they work better with shorter (aka normal) maps: blog.datawrapper.de/weeklychar

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. 🙌 datawrapper.de/
