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:
See what your part of the world looked like before photography: https://www.watercolourworld.org/
Compelling new “ask your data” feature in Tableau, but I think that Tableau thinks their users must be really into… wine? https://www.tableau.com/products/new-features/ask-data

Hey, we now have a vis.social directory! Add hashtag interests to your profile, and check the profile box to opt in to be listed there, so people can find you.
Looking into self-hosted Google Analytics alternatives, and… the competition is not so good, right? Matomo seems like the leader, but they are *really* pushing the paid version, and the self-hosted version relies on a lot of dependencies I don't want, like MySQL.
In my ideal world there would be some super-simple Node.js script that uses SQLite as a backing store, or an Nginx plugin, but I guess it doesn't exist? 🤔
OK *someone* here started following a bunch of, um, adult accounts, so the federated timeline here on vis.social was getting a bit, um, porny.
I've cleaned the timeline a bit, so as not to scare aware new folks or creep out current ones. You are all still free to follow whomever you desire — but those follows won't all appear on the federated timeline.
Submit a report if you see any porn accounts appearing there and I will filter them out.
