Pinned toot

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:

Great video demo showing a new image process that squeezes more pixels out of the pixels you already have. I ♥️ smart people!

(Recent measles outbreaks are top of mind for me right now.)

Hi, folks. I no longer have the capacity to run vis.social. Thank you for all of your donations over the past year to cover the costs. We're now spending ~$55/mo. on hosting, plus some administrative costs (like the domain name).

Anyone interested in shepherding vis.social?

So many spam accounts, so little time. May have to lock down new registrations for a while and clean house.

For those of you who are thinking about diversity, inclusion and representativity in dataviz and what you can do, I wrote a blog post of my experience using an inclusion rider as a speaker at a data-related conference. chezvoila.com/blog/inclusionri

Hi, folks! Apparently we are up to ~4,000 users here on vis.social. Exciting!

I haven't been super active here (busy with lots of projects), but if you are getting something out of it, please consider a donation: vis.social/about/more

I just upgraded our hosting plan to ~USD$45 per month to handle all your toots. So, yeah, there's no such thing as a free toot. 🍍

…and by "best" I mean it was the least shady in terms of privacy practices. It certainly was not the simplest to install.
