I’m formulating a plan for inclusion efforts on, 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:


My contract is ending soon and I’m looking for my next role. I’m an information designer & UX architect with a specialty in visualization (eg: systems for reporting or communicating data). Seattle/remote. Bonus points for roles saving the world. Intros welcome. Thank you!

Hello! I'm a designer & a grad student from Syracuse University. I'm working on my master's thesis (not related to dataviz) and learning d3. I wanted to be an engineer, then a product designer, and then a photographer. I have since settled on working to make information useful.

See what your part of the world looked like before photography:

Maybe they asked their data, and what it said was “your people love wine.”

Compelling new “ask your data” feature in Tableau, but I think that Tableau thinks their users must be really into… wine?

I got annoyed at using our weird system --> 24:60:60, so I made a clock face. It is currently 78.7655% of the way through the day, or around six minutes to seven in old money. I still feel like a four year old trying to read this.

Hi! Giving this mastodon thing a try out. I'm an enthusiast who mostly uses to get the job done hopefully heading to the physical land of soon. Where to next? ? ?

Hey, we now have a directory! Add hashtag interests to your profile, and check the profile box to opt in to be listed there, so people can find you.

Everyone: use on your profile bio and opt in to the directory:

only poor me there atm..

Hey everyone! I'm an aspiring 3D artist here looking to improve their work. New to Mastodon and would love any advice that you can give me. :3 I've arbitrarily attached a screenshot of one of my works for the fun of it.


Flesh out = build up / put together

Flush out = get rid of / 💩

So many people say the latter when they mean the former.

Since I'm apparently my team's infoviz expert, and there's apparently a specific social network for that type of person (this place!)... Hello everyone!

Here's a photo of me planning out my colour math on a napkin at a cafe with a conveniently rainbow menu.

Hey Y'all New To This New Social Network Trying To Figure Out How It's Working And Find A Good Group. & Yes I'm Tired Of These Old Social Network... WELCOME 🙏

Just renewed the domain for another year. Thanks to supporting donors and all you wacky people for keeping this experiment going.

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? 🤔

Hey beautiful people.

Always make time to take care of yourself. It’s going to look different from day to day, but make sure you always have space for you.

It matters. It makes a difference.

OK *someone* here started following a bunch of, um, adult accounts, so the federated timeline here on 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.
