My contract is ending soon and I’m looking for my next role. I’m an information designer & UX architect with a specialty in visualization (eg: systems for reporting or communicating data). Seattle/remote. Bonus points for roles saving the world. Intros welcome. Thank you!

What are people using to code these days? Sublime? Atom? Something newer and cooler?

Oh, hey, been a while. Who else is at information+?

Just pitched vis.social to the seattle data vis jam sessions meetup group (in person, not online). Hopefully a few will join us!

Twitter *doesn’t* tell you the gender balance of the people *you* follow. But this brilliant person wrote some code to estimate just that. And the good news is I follow only slightly more (estimated) men than women or nonbinary folks. This estimate is also slightly more optimistic about my own followers, placing them at only 75% male, not 80%.

Try for yourself: proporti.onl

Why does this 'timeline' have such a gender skew that is not representative of the Data Viz community? I will do the labor of asking the question, but you dudes need to do the rest. If it's not fixed, or at least addressed in some way, I will not participate or promote at all. Figure it out. And let me know.

Erk. Considering a role with a manager who's a close personal friend of Tufte. Awkward...

Just replaced a <select> with a list of clickable items, since the list of options will never go above 8 and that screen had only that select element at that stage.

@noahi I really like this colorpicker because it shows you the full HCL color spectrum available to choose from and gives you visually equidistant colors: tristen.ca/hcl-picker/

@dej611 @noahi I also made this little helper gka.github.io/palettes

ohhh, I should add color blindness checking to that tool 🤓

Wow, lots of great responses, which I'll retoot now.
