Heading home from , which was really, really good! Hard to identify a common theme or thread but a great summary of what’s going on right now.

My highlights: Shan Carter’s talk on sci comm / distill.pub, @maarten ‘s talk on xerographics, Aaron Williams on mapping segregation in the US.. lots of good for thought.

Also interesting that the big themes of the last years: storytelling and physical/analogue viz were not really discussed (or selected by the committee).

Lots of new members here on vis.social this week. (We are up to 923 in total!)

Where is everyone coming from? (Geographically, but also how did you hear about this place?)

TIL there's a fine line between " catacomb" and "macaron" 😬

Also, for anyone visiting , I might do a little tour of the show on Wednesday morning. Let me know if you'd like to join!

Just in case you'll be lucky enough to be on Paris some time May to September this year — there'll be a great exhibition at Fondation EDF, featuring around 40 data artworks (some by me as well ☺️).

If you ever connected to the Internet before the 2000s, you probably remember that it made a peculiar sound. (via absorptions: The sound of the dialup, pictured )

I wrote a couple of essays on interaction design and data visualisation. The most recent one — "Strategies for Design-Science Collaboration" — might also be interesting for this community!

Feedback welcome!

The OpenVis Conf speaker list is up — happy to see some familiar faces, and even happier to see some unfamiliar ones, too! openvisconf.com/#speakers Who's coming?

Interesting comparison of animal vs human fashion, brought to you by tensorflow. vis.social/media/Inc8tTFZjY50f

Thinking about exhibition (and catering!) options for data-cuisine.net in Paris in May — any food labs / tinkerers / food stylists / chocolate experts … who could help us with catering and also food preservation / replica? Paris locals preferred — thanks for any leads!

Friends, eyeo tickets are on sale in 4 minutes! If you have a chance to go, do it. It's super nice. eyeofestival.com

I made a quick network visualization of all vis.social users.

Each follower of @scott is a node, each follow relationship is an arrow. The more followers an account has, the bigger it is. Color by modularity, position by ForceAtlas2.

If you want to visualize your own network, my quick python script is here: gist.github.com/lucahammer/bb2
