Would anyone know where or how to find generative art based on NLP, or people doing such thing?
“Strange Bird” is a new podcast “about the data behind our everyday lives with Mona Chalabi.”
And it’s published through a new UI by the Guardian Mobile Lab — part audio player, part chatbot, part photo viewer. It includes lots of charts, too!

This is a first: seasonal data vis work!
NPR Visuals is hiring a Contract News Apps Developer to help cover the 2018 US midterm elections. A great opportunity to work with a fantastic team, short-term, in DC! But also a sign of maturity of the field — organizations hiring a “surge” of talent for newsy events.

I know it's old news now but I'm still a little in awe of 538's Atlas of Redistricting (https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-maps/)

the more i explore 🐘, i must say i'm getting a bit excited about the prospects of a free and federated alternative to twitter without 'optimized' timelines or a profit-oriented mothership, but with a growing community rooting for it.

thanks @scott for bringing us together here!
