@vlandham also thanks for replying to my inquiry on both platforms. :-P

@vlandham should have said: am asking on behalf of a workshop attendee -- grad student in biostatistics getting into data visualization, looking to connect with others already doing this work. :)

@matth @sarahslo this is just the sort of exchange I hope would happen here. ☺️

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

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

@matth Wow wow wow, I love it! I am not an illustrator but get hugely excited about using illustrations (including comics, specifically) with data. Fantastic work — thank you for sharing it here!

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.

That said, all of SF is pretty dirty... Just not that dirty. :)
