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:

Under the sun
There's one spot in the world right now,
where the sun is exactly overhead,
and it's this one:
My book is due to hit its 2nd birthday next week. Seems like I finished it only yesterday but work is due to commence on the 2nd edition shortly. I'd be really grateful for any satisfied book owners to submit short positive reviews on Amazon (or wherever they bought it) to help shape the nature of this 2nd edition release. The more satisfied people are, the less likely I will face huge amounts of changes, edits and beyond-scope additions. Thank you in advance!
New project on the FIFA World Cup: comparing how many times national teams participated (in #smallmultiples!!) Enjoy :-)
To the hordes waiting to join vis.social and upset that new registrations are closed:
I'm going to reopen new registrations again after we update to 2.4.1, as that should help mitigate the spam problem slightly with more rigorous email validation.

Anyone in NYC should go see the Adrian Piper exhibition at MoMA, she has a lot of data-related work.
Let me know if you want to go together! I have $5 tickets and am definitely going again
