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:

“Why Love Generative Art?”

Beautiful, comprehensive, compelling writing on art by Jason Bailey (@artnome@twitter.com)

@quephird I really find @nailpolishbot compelling, but some folks here at vis.social feel it's taken over the timeline a bit. Would you consider scaling back the frequency of posting to maybe every few hours, not once per hour?

This is soooo cool and relaxing! Fly the 787 Dreamliner in a WebGL browser, but using your smartphone as the controller. Brilliant!

Thanks to @aditya for the tip.

“The investigation into the Skripal poisoning, known as Operation Wedana, will stand as a high-profile test of an investigative technique Britain has pioneered: accumulating mounds of visual data and sifting through it.”

Yes, let's please get rid of daylight saving time altogether! Summer time forever! europa.eu/rapid/press-release_

Start your own 🐘 instance, set new people to auto-follow you, generate vis showing how you are the essential center of the entire network muhahahaha

Half a year later. vis.social grew to 1 569 users. Here are the 1 684 users who follow @scott.

Visualized 647 with 2 or more incoming degrees (follows from this instance). Excluded accounts from other instances. Size by In-Degree (splined).

It's still a tightly knit community.

Twitter is a horror show, @scott has given us sanctuary here... let's try and make vis.social work! Lot's of people talking about and moving to Mastodon this week, but nobody know how it works?

@bit101 Hey, yeah... I've been trying to work through everyone else's list, but it's most data viz people (which is great!). I know @scott's intention was for more creative coders too... let's get on that!!! Invite your friends!! ✊

I am a maths student at the university of York currently working on a web application for visualising structures that exist in in the integers!

I'm not the most experienced programmer so it's tough going but this seems like a good place to share it

it's loosely related to this interactive thing I made a couple years ago on my website: joelstrouts.com/blog/factorfin

I think @lisacrost may have my dream job. She answers the most pressing questions, like what colors should I use to encode gender?

Welcome, new people! Where is everyone coming from?

Our group at Microsoft Research recently released : a new interactive tool for bespoke visualization design, and we'd love to hear your feedback.

You can use it in your browser at charticulator.com, where you'll also find a gallery along with video tutorials.

Charticulator is open source at github.com/microsoft/charticulator

We also wrote a paper about Charticulator for IEEEVIS, which received an Honorable Mention for Best Paper: microsoft.com/en-us/research/u
