“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!
“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.
Thanks to @nelson for the local news tip.

So the convention is to introduce yourself using #introductions

I made this illustration in about 5 minutes with Processing.
