I'm writing Fair Warning - a newsletter about data journalism & visualisation - and almost ready to send out. I'm two people away from 800 subscribers which is very weird but awesome. Sign up here getrevue.co/profile/FairWarnin

only realised today what the difference was between Home and Local Timeline

currently working on an MS implemention, and read this doozy on the MS website on "Common myths of reporting":
