My book is due to hit its 2nd birthday next week. Seems like I finished it only yesterday but work is due to commence on the 2nd edition shortly. I'd be really grateful for any satisfied book owners to submit short positive reviews on Amazon (or wherever they bought it) to help shape the nature of this 2nd edition release. The more satisfied people are, the less likely I will face huge amounts of changes, edits and beyond-scope additions. Thank you in advance!

Thanks to @alexwein and @matth as the latest supporters of! Your donations help keep the lights on here. 💡🐘

How to support:

Anyone in NYC should go see the Adrian Piper exhibition at MoMA, she has a lot of data-related work.

Let me know if you want to go together! I have $5 tickets and am definitely going again
