Pinned toot

I’m formulating a plan for inclusion efforts on vis.social, with the goal of making this a more diverse (and therefore more valuable and sustainable) social space.

But… I don't know what I'm doing! Please review and comment to me here, or in the doc:

Hi, folks! Apparently we are up to ~4,000 users here on vis.social. Exciting!

I haven't been super active here (busy with lots of projects), but if you are getting something out of it, please consider a donation: vis.social/about/more

I just upgraded our hosting plan to ~USD$45 per month to handle all your toots. So, yeah, there's no such thing as a free toot. 🍍

Diversity and Inclusion scholarships for under-represented people including but not limited to "race, gender, identity, accessibility needs, socio-economic status, as well as fields of study/employment/participation.". Pass it along to your friends and co-workers! eyeofestival.com/registration/

…and by "best" I mean it was the least shady in terms of privacy practices. It certainly was not the simplest to install.

In the meantime… I haven't been super active on here. Please submit your spam reports, and reach out if you see anything shady going on! :)

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!

Hello! I'm a designer & a grad student from Syracuse University. I'm working on my master's thesis (not related to dataviz) and learning d3. I wanted to be an engineer, then a product designer, and then a photographer. I have since settled on working to make information useful.

See what your part of the world looked like before photography: watercolourworld.org/

Maybe they asked their data, and what it said was “your people love wine.”
