@havegum Hi, and welcome! Happy to have you joining the conversation here.

@ivgin Hello and welcome! We ♥️ design here. :)

@cldellow Hi, and welcome! Thanks for the note. I ♥️ DataWrapper. :)

So you can take the Portland Aerial Tram up to the OSHU complex near Stonehenge radio tower, which I knew, but what I *didn't* know is you can veer right as soon as you get off the tram and walk along an AMAZING patio area that overlooks the whole frickin' Willamette Valley/Portland area—cafe tables and all.

Oh I'm coming back up here, no doubt about it!

Hello vis.social!

Working with D3 to make research on blockchains, their economics, their algorithms more accessible.

Interactions with visualisations provide interfaces to the complex systems supporting blockchains. Here is one example! hackingresear.ch/cbc-inspector

More generally, I am interested in using data and interfaces to communicate research in an empowering way. This is both social and visual :)

Looking forward to more great content here!

For my next DIY project, I successfully made my own cold brew coffee this weekend. ☕️

It turns out it's not rocket science, and coincidentally, the coffee shop markup on cold brew is insane. I mean, it takes less energy and is way easier to make than hot-brewed coffee, so it should actually cost less. 🙂

Happy independence day (for those in the US)!

I successfully executed a DIY electrical repair yesterday, without electrocuting myself. So, yeah, I'm feeling , at least from having to shell out $200 to an electrician. ⚡️💸

Hi, folks. I no longer have the capacity to run vis.social. Thank you for all of your donations over the past year to cover the costs. We're now spending ~$55/mo. on hosting, plus some administrative costs (like the domain name).

Anyone interested in shepherding vis.social?
