‪Do people post datavis papers on ArXiv or some other preprint server?‬

This is a great way to think about space/time visualization, with an awesome cake-based explainer! aviz.fr/~bbach/spacetimecubes/

Honest question: what, if any, is the difference between "data visualization" and "visual analytics"?

Didn't know about this nice hack to get interactive graphics into Medium blog posts: put an iframe into JSfiddle and then embed it vis.social/media/SeX378LX9s9jz vis.social/media/PbJSaXk-DoEp1

btw, is Matthiew Daniels already in here somewhere?
