Would anyone know where or how to find generative art based on NLP, or people doing such thing?

Normally I am oppose the use of gradients and drop shadows in a bar chart. But if the data is appealing enough, I can make an exception. 😉

Who out there is using for biostatistics?

“Strange Bird” is a new podcast “about the data behind our everyday lives with Mona Chalabi.”

And it’s published through a new UI by the Guardian Mobile Lab — part audio player, part chatbot, part photo viewer. It includes lots of charts, too!

Hey this new data comic by @matth is amazing. 👏

This is a first: seasonal data vis work!

NPR Visuals is hiring a Contract News Apps Developer to help cover the 2018 US midterm elections. A great opportunity to work with a fantastic team, short-term, in DC! But also a sign of maturity of the field — organizations hiring a “surge” of talent for newsy events.

“Diseased Streets” — a map of human feces and needles on the streets of San Francisco. ☹️

CON: Story refers only to "downtown San Francisco" yet reporting is specific to the Tenderloin and Civic Center, the poopiest and needle-iest areas, in my experience.

Hi, a newbie toot.

I'm working towards an open-source, non-profit platform for world music visualization, ultimately supporting all notated music systems, instruments and theory tools.

Visual Music? Dialog, interwork and collaboration centered around an exhaustive diversity of musical models.

Desperate for virtual affection: likes, shares, claps, tweets. ;-)

the more i explore 🐘, i must say i'm getting a bit excited about the prospects of a free and federated alternative to twitter without 'optimized' timelines or a profit-oriented mothership, but with a growing community rooting for it.

thanks @scott for bringing us together here!
