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:

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

Hey everyone, I'm currently looking for full time/contract opportunities. If your company is hiring or someone you know is, please do let me know 😊

Google Doc comments as modern-day Talmudic annotation (if less deliberative). Sometimes what’s in the margins surpasses the value of the initial text alone.

This is so beautiful.

“Phantom Islands” is a sonic atlas of islands of islands whose existence has never been confirmed. Love the cartographic, visual, and interaction design here.

i dont see favorites or boosts -- im here for "actual" social engagement with real people. mentions are the only thing i get notifications about, so if you think we'd get along, dont just follow me, say hi!

i love having a dialogue; treat me with dignity and ill return the favor. im open to discussions about everything, if you approach them in the right way.

not everything has to be serious.
