I swear, @lisacrost is doing the most clear and accessible writing about data vis principles today. Read her latest: blog.datawrapper.de/dualaxis/

@scott @lisacrost She is indeed and it is killing my own blog posting. As I sit there and start a post I think "will this be as good as a Lisa Rost post? No. Kill draft"


@andykirk @scott 😮 Please publish all these drafts, Andy! They will be helpful to people. Even if it's just a little bit differently explained than in the 100 other articles about the same topic, it will click with people (who disliked the other 100 ones). (At least that's what I'm telling myself.)

Also, we should all blog more like it's 2005 (had a good conversation with @moritz about that at OpenVis)! I'm glad I'm publishing some bad Weekly Charts from time to time, to get my standards down.

@andykirk @scott @moritz Also, sorry for the late reply. I have been logged out of Vis.social since April/May, it seems. I can't remember doing that on purpose... 🤔 Anyway, I didn't get any notifications, and now it's just a joy to catch up with what happened here. So many conversations I missed...and Thank You's I didn't give in time :)

@lisacrost @andykirk @scott @moritz I agree that anyone should publish, no matter who has on a similar topic before. We also have different audiences. And we write to learn as much as to teach.
