The old adage "on the internet, nobody knows you're a dog" is so much more relevant now that so many of the people I talk to here are furries.

They want you to know they're a dog. Its pretty wonderful.

Wonderful chart! This one is personal for me, as Portland is one of the few cities in the US which actually has an 🚡.

Does anyone have any recommendations for inexpensive hosting solutions (Python and Node) for art projects?

I like this idea for every city.

I think all the @toronto mayoral candidates should have to perform a commuter challenge. One week by bike (on Shaw), one by wheelchair, one by transit and one with a stroller. Then I’d like to compare their plans to fix navigating the city.

I'm still really new in my job, and gave a big presentation today on my vision for what I'm doing. I feel *very* clever for coming up with this kale analogy:

Any idea who I should reach out to for hosting the d3 unconf this year? Probably 2 days over a week-end in Oct or Nov

Trying to be a good ally, updated my 🐘 bio in response to this thoughtful thread:

Still, tweaking one's bio is not a monumental step. Are there guides (for white/straight/male people) to being a good ally on social media?

Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

Great CodeNewbie episode, and now I have a professional crush on Sarah Drasner. ❤️☺️

Excellent round-up of graphics of the Thai cave rescue in the latest Naked Data.

The many cave maps and attempts to demonstrate scale have results in some beautiful artwork. But I often can't tell which way is up. (Perhaps this is an appropriate sensation to have, given the content.)

Many of these graphics mix "upright" cave cross-sections with bird's eye-view "flat" maps. Existing visual conventions don’t gracefully accommodate 3D paths like underground tunnels.
